Urbana High Moves to E-Learning Before Vacation Due to Threats | Main stories

URBANA, Ill. (WAND) — Urbana High School will be holding an online learning session Monday and Tuesday before the break due to multiple threats received in November.

In a joint release from Urbana Police and Urbana School District 116, the school has received numerous threats of violence since Nov. 7.

In the evening of November 15, an employee of UGS received a letter from an unknown person who threatened to harm students and teachers. The letter was sent to UPD and the FBI. During the investigation, FBI agents learned of additional threats from the same email source on November 16, and the school was placed on strict lockdown “out of an abundance of caution.”

On November 18, additional threats were received again from an email source. It is unclear in the release whether these threats are related to the previous one made on November 7.

The threats are being investigated by UPD and the FBI, who believe they are part of a larger national trend. Investigators “continue to believe that the staff and children were not in immediate danger.”

USD116, after consultation with UPD and union leaders, decided to switch to e-learning on Monday and Tuesday, November 21-22. Parents of UHS students were advised to check their email for more information.

Urbana police are asking anyone with additional information or video of the incident to contact police at 217-384-2320. It is possible to arrange for the information to be shared privately. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can also submit a tip to Crime Stoppers at: 217-373-8477 (TIPS); online at 373tips.com; or the “P3 Tips” mobile app.
