The school districts of Toledo, Perrysburg and Washington Local were alerted to the potential threat, but ultimately declared that no threats were found. Superintendent Patrick Hickey at Washington Local said the district works closely with all law enforcement agencies for the safety of its students and staff. The investigation is currently ongoing.
What specific measures did the school districts of Toledo, Perrysburg, and Washington Local take to investigate the potential threat?
In response to the potential threat, the school districts of Toledo, Perrysburg and Washington Local acted swiftly.

Additionally, each district provided additional training and guidance to their staff on how to handle potential threats. Although no threats were found, the schools still took multiple measures to ensure the safety of their students and staff.
The Toledo Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation actively worked together to investigate any potential threat. Both agencies interviewed witnesses and possible suspects, analyzed any potential threat messages, and monitored social media content.

The three school districts will continue the investigation until conclusive evidence has been collected and reviewed. All safety measures and protocols remain in place until the potential threat is addressed in full. The public should be aware that officials take every threat, potential or not, seriously and will remain vigilant until any issues have been addressed. The safety and security of students in the area is paramount, and the school districts, the Toledo Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure the safety of the community.
