Schaumburg High School and District 211 are aware of a viral social media post associated with an individual named “Ray Andres” describing a vague threat of violence toward “SHS”. In working with the Schaumburg Police Department, we know this message to be a hoax. We are aware that schools in Illinois and across the country with the same acronym of “SHS” are also receiving the same hoax threat message. There is no credible threat to any District 211 schools. We will continue to monitor this matter and work with the local law enforcement agencies to ensure our schools are safe.
“Linked here is a statement from the Schaumburg Police Department relative to this matter. We continue to work with the police to investigate and support each other in all matters relative to school safety.”
