Liberty High School says that a threat that it received through SafeVoice is not credible and it is safe for children to go to school.

The school district notified parents about the threat on Sunday night. The type of threat was not revealed in the message to parents. 

CCSD said in a tweet they found out about the threat through the smartphone app SafeVoice.  The app allows students and parents to report threats anonymously.

Foothill High School in Henderson also posted about a possible threat on their Facebook page last night. 

According to the post, threats were made on social media. Las Vegas police and Clark County School District police apparently investigated and found the threat not to be credible.

School police also said that threats were made against Silverado High School and all of the threats were most likely made by the same person. Las Vegas police handled the situation over the weekend. 13 Action News is waiting for a call from the department about the incident.
