The Orland School superintendent is telling parents there is no threat against Orland High School.


Despite a social media 'frenzy' set off by an online post. It warned that a student was threatening to shoot up the school. But Superintendent Ken Geisick says it's not true, and that every campus in Orland is safe today. School officials said this student actually formerly attended the school and is now in a treatment facility out of state

The district is in contact with law enforcement and the treatment facility.

While Geisick said there is no reason for students to stay home today, in light of the school shootings in Florida, he said it's important to stay vigilant and aware of our surroundings, and to report any concerning behavior.
