Social Media Messages Determined "Not Credible" by Local Law Enforcement

We are aware of the disconcerting messages/statements regarding Orange and Villa Park High Schools that began circulating on social media last night. Local law enforcement has investigated and the Orange Police Department and Orange County Sheriff Department have determined that the messages/statements are fabricated and there is no credible threat to any of our schools.

All threats to student safety are taken extremely seriously and all participants will be held accountable for their actions. At Orange Unified, student safety is of the highest priority. Please feel free to contact the Office of Student and Community Services or your school’s office if there are any questions or concerns.


The Orange Unified School District educates approximately 26,000 PreK-12th grade students in the Cities of Orange, Villa Park, Anaheim, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, and unincorporated county areas.  In partnership with our community, we provide a safe, equitable, and innovative culture of learning for each scholar to have a competitive EDGE as a leader.
