DARBY – Darby Schools Superintendent Loyd Rennaker has confirmed another social media threat made against Darby High School.

Rennaker tells MTN News that a student brought a Snapchat thread they discovered from an anonymous/unidentifiable account at 10:30 a.m. School administrators contacted parents and many of them came to pick up their students.

The school was not on lock down, but students were restricted to the main building. Rennaker said that the school wanted to leave it up to parents to decide whether or not they wanted their child in school.

He said that he did not believe there was a dangerous person on campus.

The Darby Marshal’s Office and Ravalli County are investigating. Extra law enforcement personnel were present at the school Wednesday, including four Ravalli County Sheriff’s deputies and Darby Police.

Administrators are meeting Wednesday afternoon with the school board to decided whether or not to have class on Thursday and what will happen the rest of the week.

Rennaker said they have never before dealt with a threat like this during his time as superintendent.

This is a developing story.
