Sammamish Police Have Leads, No Suspects in Skyline Threat

The district says school is returning to normal, with normal attendance yesterday and upper classmen permitted to leave campus for lunch.

Sammamish Police Have Leads, No Suspects in Skyline Threat

Addressing members of the Sammamish Kiwanis Club last night, Sammamish Police Chief Nate Elledge said the department continues to work leads regarding an anonymous Internet threat against Skyline High School last week that closed two schools in Sammamish last week.

Elledge said detectives have leads and have talked to at least one person, but have not determined a suspect yet.

Elledge said that the threat likely was made by a teen, perhaps copying another earlier threat in Lynnwood. He said one of the important takeaways from the event is that it's a good idea to monitor computer use, remembering that as parents, we own the equipment in the house and can determine where and when it is used.

Elledge said the department doesn't tell schools to close, but in this case he believed it was a wise move by the district.

Meanwhile, things on campus at the school continued to return to normal, with a 96 percent attendance rate, the district told families in an email Wednesday. Upperclassmen are now permitted to leave campus for lunch, but the student parking lot on campus is closed during lunch and the Sammamish Police continue to have a presence at the school.

"Students continue to rebound, and you can hear conversations of encouragement and laughter along with the morning reminder of 'Be Nice!'" the note to parents said.
