(Fairfield, IA) -- The Fairfield Community School District superintendent says the violent threat made online against Fairfield High School is not credible.

A picture of a Snapchat post, saying a student would commit gun violence at the high school, circulated social media over the weekend.

Superintendent Dr. Laurie Noll addressed rumors of a violent attack on a YouTube video Sunday night.

Noll says the district is working closely with law enforcement to prevent violence and respond appropriately to any threat.

"There is no viable threat to students. All rumors, or threats, have been investigated by law enforcement, and they stated that our schools are safe," said Noll.

The rumors come in the aftermath of the murder of Fairfield High School's Spanish teacher Nohema Graber.

Fairfield citizens are advised to report suspicious activity at 641-472-4146. If the threat is immediate, call 911.
