A warning of a possible shooting at Bellevue East High School has been deemed unsubstantiated by officials.

In a letter sent to families Saturday night, the Bellevue Public Schools said police found “no evidence of a threat.”

“The School District and Law Enforcement will continue to monitor and investigate any reports we receive,” the letter said.

The school was made aware of the warning, a screenshot of a message allegedly posted on Snapchat, on Friday and communicated with families and staff that night, said Amanda Oliver, a district spokeswoman.

“Dont go to school Monday,” the Snapchat said. “There may/may not be a shooting caused by someone (not disclosing name). Convince them not to go. I’m trying to save people.”

Superintendent Jeff Rippe shared the message in a tweet Friday that said, “Safety of students and staff is always our priority and we will make sure this is the case when everyone returns on Monday.”
