WATERFORD — Waterford High School received information Wednesday of a threat about a gun that came across the popular social media sharing app Snapchat, but officials were able to determine the threat was not credible, Waterford Union High School Superintendent Keith Brandstetter said Friday.

Brandstetter said school officials learned about the threat at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and law enforcement immediately looked into it and determined by 2:30 a.m. Thursday that it was not credible.

“Law enforcement did a good job,” Brandstetter said.

Extra law enforcement was present at the school on Thursday and students, families and staff were notified about the issue, Brandstetter said.

The superintendent could not release any additional information about who made the threat or any possible disciplinary action.
