Liberty High School closed Friday, April 21, due to potential threat

Issaquah School District officials stated a possible threat was the cause for closing the school.

The Issaquah School District has closed Liberty High School for Friday, April 21 due to a possible threat against the school.

Official reported in a release they could not confirm if the threat was credible.

The following is the release from the school district:

“Liberty High School has been made aware of an anonymous possible threat to our school tomorrow, April 21. Unfortunately, we cannot verify whether or not the threat is credible.

Therefore, for the safety of students and staff, we have made a decision to close Liberty High School tomorrow, Friday, April 21. The King County Sheriff’s Office has been notified and is investigating the situation.

While the closure of school tomorrow is disruptive, we believe it is in the best interest of student and staff safety and will give law enforcement the opportunity to investigate the situation further.

Updated information will be shared as it becomes available.

INFO for Feeder Pattern Schools:

The safety of our students and staff is the highest priority. If we had any information (or direction from law enforcement) indicating a wider threat, we would take the precaution of closing neighboring schools too. All Liberty feeder schools (Maywood, Apollo, Newcastle, Maple Hills, and Briarwood) will operate on normal times tomorrow. However, as always, families must make their own decisions about what they are comfortable with, and if that choice is to keep a student home, they may notify their school and the absence would be considered excused.”
