CHICO, Calif. - Administrators at Pleasant Valley High School in Chico reached out to parents on Thursday after a threat of violence was posted on social media.

School officials say that two students got into a fight on Tuesday. One student threatened the other and that threat led to rumors around campus, which were then posted online. 

The school's administration called Chico police.

After officers interviewed witnesses and searched the campus and homes, they found the threat was not credible.

On Thursday, police identified the person who made the post about the threat.

School officials are not saying how the student was disciplined but did say expulsion was an option.
