Allegations of social media threat prompt investigation at Glenbard West H.S.


Glen Ellyn police said they are investigating an allegation that threats of violence against students at Glenbard West High School were made by another student through social media.

School was in session Friday morning after an investigation Thursday led officers to conclude that there was no danger to students or staff at the school, 670 Crescent Blvd., according to a news release issued Thursday night from the Glen Ellyn Police Department.

No arrests have been made in the incident, but “officers will continue to follow up on the case and provide a strong presence at the school,” according to the release.

According to the Glenbard West website, the school has about 2,100 students and a teaching staff of 140.

“The Glen Ellyn police and staff at Glenbard West will remain steadfast in investigating allegations like these to ensure the safety of the Glenbard West community,” said police Chief Philip Norton, who praised the individuals “who had the awareness to come forward and report this situation.”
