ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A student is in custody after a threat was found at Roseburg High School.

School officials said someone found a written threat in the girls bathroom around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The school's administration and resource officer immediately began investigating.

They say by 12:30 p.m. they identified the student responsible, and the student was taken into custody by law enforcement.

Superintendent Gerry Washburn said school was not disrupted because the threat wasn't immediate.

“Because in this instance the threat referenced a specific date and it was in the future, we have the capacity to operate with some breathing room,” Washburn said.

School staff said disciplinary action will follow district policy, and that they will work to ensure the student responsible receives the needed support and appropriate supervision.

The district is asking parents to remind children and teenagers that making any kind of threat carries serious consequences.

They also want to reinforce to parents that student safety is their top priority, and any questions regarding this incident should be referred to the superintendent's office.
