Janesville police received a tip at about 7:40 a.m. Monday about a threat to bring a gun to Parker High School posted on Facebook.
Shortly after 8 a.m., a 16-year-old girl was referred to juvenile authorities on a charge of disorderly conduct, according to Janesville Police Lt. Charles Aagaard.
The girl told police the threat was meant as a joke, and she took it down several hours after she posted it.
The email indicated the “Janesville Police Department do not feel that there exists a credible threat/danger, however the student will be facing disciplinary actions.”
District communications specialist Patrick Gasper said the district works very closely with the police in such situations. However, the police make determinations about the level of threat and how to respond.
