According to TUSD spokeswoman Karla Escamilla, the threat referring to Palo Verde High School was reported through social media on Wednesday. The Tucson Police Department did an investigation and the threat was cleared last night.

There is currently no threat to the school or its students, though there is additional security on campus today.
Classes are scheduled as normal, Escamilla said.
