CHICO, Calif. - A possible threat at Chico Junior High School involving two students is now being investigated by police.

Action News Now spoke with the school's principal who said kids do not understand the magnitude of making the situation into a joke.

The two were trying to scare their friends with a threatening list of names but did not understand what a serious situation it was.

A parent made a post about the list online which sparked conversation.

When the school became aware of the list, they immediately notified both Chico Police and the school district.

Principal Pedro Caldera and Chico Police are taking the situation very seriously and are making sure the right actions are being taken on the situation that they are considering a very serious matter.

"It's the nature of the times that we are living in. We are not afforded the opportunity or the chance to think of this as a prank and it's extremely serious," said Caldera. "It affects the mental well-being of students when they are not feeling safe coming to school, and we can't have that. Schools are meant to be a safe place."

Caldera said the investigation is ongoing and wants parents and students to know the school is there for them.
