Romeoville police on Tuesday determined a threat made on social media referencing an area career center was unfounded, according to Plainfield School District 202 officials.
District 202 parents and guardians of students who attend Wilco Area Career Center received a message Tuesday morning regarding a possible threat made on social media about the school, Director of Community Relations Tom Hernandez said.
"We have been working with Plainfield, Romeoville and Joliet police departments to identify the individual who made the threat and ensure that he will not be attending today," the message said. "Additional police presence will be available today at Wilco."
Romeoville police investigated the potential threat and determined it was not credible, Hernandez said. He said the student, or suspect, never went to Wilco.
Romeoville police could not immediately be reached for more information Wednesday morning.
Students from Plainfield District 202 and other area schools attend Wilco to enhance their ability to enter directly into the workforce, continue their education or enter some form of post-high school career training, according to the school's website.
