School threat deemed false

Earlier this week Chase County Schools received information about a possible threat of violence. Both school officials and law enforcement have deemed the school safe.
“We take school security very seriously,” Police Chief Ryan Wisnieski said. “We’ve looked into the issue and interviewed students and parents.”
School officials and Imperial law enforcement have determined that the threat was not credible.
“The safety of our students is a priority,” 7-12 Principal Jon Lechtenberg said. “If a student or patron ever receives information regarding an immediate threat to our safety they are encouraged to report it immediately by calling 911.”
School officials and law enforcement reviewed available information and determined the threat was not credible.
“We’re on alert,” Lechtenberg said, “but for the most part it’s business as usual.”
If someone receives information that is concerning and should be shared with the school, contact an administrator at 308-882-4304, Lechtenberg said.
