Officers Investigate Threatening Graffiti at San Rafael High School
On Thursday, March 15, 2018 we were notified by staff at San Rafael High School of graffiti located in a girl’s restroom on campus. The graffiti consisted of a threat referencing a shooting. Detectives and school staff immediately investigated the graffiti. The threat does not appear to be credible at this time.
Apparently, the graffiti was photographed by a student before school staff was made aware of it. The photograph was then shared on multiple social media platforms. This created fear in the community, and as a result, some parents chose to keep their children home today. Classes went on as scheduled and officers were on campus when school started this morning. They remained on campus throughout the day as a precaution.
We take school safety seriously and will continue to investigate this matter to identify the responsible parties. San Rafael High School classes will resume on Tuesday morning per their normal schedule. They encourage parents to send their children to school.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call San Rafael Police at (415) 485-3000. Tips can also be made online at http://www.srpd.org/tips.
