A message was sent to the parents of Sunrise Mountain High School students today regarding the arrest of a 17-year-old male student for making threats to the school.

Dear Sunrise Mountain High School Families:
Providing a safe, positive learning environment for our students is the number one priority and I wanted to keep you informed of important issues happening within our school community.
Recently, we received information about threats made against our students and staff. We immediately shared this information with the Clark County School District Police Department, which investigated the threats and arrested an individual for making terroristic threats.
The arrests provide us with an opportunity to remind parents to have discussions with your child regarding making threatening statements and that there are consequences that go with inappropriate conduct.
It is also important for students and parents to report any possible suspicious activity or behavior to school administration and/or law enforcement.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at 702-799-7207.

This is a developing story and we will updated the article as soon as more is known about the arrest.

This is one of a few threats made to schools in Southern Nevada since the tragic Florida high school shooting on Feb. 14.
