Police Officers will be offering extra patrols in the Bethalto school district today after a teacher discovered a threatening note on Friday. The teacher informed the administration which conducted an investigation, and does not believe the threat to be credible. The district reported the incident to the Bethalto police, who are conducting their own investigation.
Based on current information the school district does not believe that there is a threat to students, but there will be police officers in the schools today, out of "an abundance of caution". School administrators were not available for comment at this time.
