Graffiti bomb threats to two Elk Grove campuses deemed not credible

Two Elk Grove schools were the subject of graffiti bomb threat warnings, prompting increased law enforcement presence at both campuses on Wednesday.

The threats were found on Tuesday at Cosumnes Oaks and Franklin high schools, district officials said. The anonymous graffiti at Cosumnes Oaks High was in a restroom, while the threat at Franklin High was in a locker room shower stall.

The district has no evidence to suggest the threats are credible, and classes were held on Wednesday.

In a statement, district officials said: “We do not consider these actions to be pranks. They are disruptive to our school and community.”

If those responsible for the graffiti can be identified, they will be arrested and recommended for expulsion, read the statement. It is a felony to post the threats, according to the district.

Letters were sent to parents at both high schools informing them of the incidents.
