A threat was made online this week toward a Perris High School, but school district officials said the suspected threat makers had been identified and the threats were not credible.

The threat, posted on social media, said a shooting would occur during the Citrus Hill High School's scheduled rally on Friday, April 13, according to a Val Verde Unified School District officials.

The threat was immediately reported to both the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and Val Verde Unified School District Police Department. School district administrators became aware of it on Thursday, according to the release.

Administrators quickly identified the students believed to be responsible for the threats and the Riverside County Sheriff's Department went to their homes to determine whether the threats were valid. No weapons were found at either of the homes, officials said.

"At this time, it has been determined that there is no threat to Citrus Hill High School and all school activities will resume as planned," the release states.

The release does note that there will be extra safety personnel present for the campus rally on Friday.

School officials encouraged anyone with additional information about the threats to contact Val Verde Unified School District Chief of Police Mark Clark at (951) 940-6100, ext. 10671.
