    There will be an increased police presence at Windsor High School Monday after a threat was made against the school on Snapchat, according to the superintendent.

    According to a statement from the superintendent, the threat came in the form of a video on Snapchat. Police have identified the threat and do not believe there is any danger to the school.

    “We work closely with our student population to ensure that any concerns are reported immediately as it is our students who are accessing social media most frequently. Additionally our partnership with the Windsor Police Department allows for continued collaboration to keep our schools safe. While I do not believe there is any continued danger for WHS, I have asked the police for an increased presence tomorrow. As always, if you have concerns or suggestions, I ask that you share them with your building principal, through our website, or to me directly. Our work together is one of the most important efforts to keep our schools safe,” read the statement from Superintendent Craig Cooke.

    Cooke said the source of the threat will not be at school Monday, but did not identify the source further.

    The case remains under investigation.
