Fargo Public Schools says rumors of threat are false

FARGO — Officials with Fargo Public Schools say rumors about a student planning to bring a gun to school are false.

A concerned parent told WDAY News on Wednesday, March 20, about a possible threat Thursday at Discovery Middle School during a fire drill.

Officials investigated the report and found no evidence to back up the rumors and also said there are no plans for any types of drills that day at the middle school.

A district spokeswoman said parents got a voice message Wednesday afternoon informing them the rumors were not true.

The district does say, however, that it's always a good idea to report any rumors of a possible attack.
