A potential threat to the Rochester Community Schools was deemed not credible last week.

Thursday evening, Fulton County Crime Stoppers received an anonymous tip about a threat to the schools. Out of an abundance of caution there was an additional police presence at the school corporation Friday morning, but the Rochester Police and Fulton County Sheriff’s Office investigated the threat and said it was not credible.

The investigation was given added gravity after two individuals pleaded guilty to plotting school shootings in the county two years ago.
