On the morning of April 10, 2018 the Sheriff’s Office learned that Mariposa County Unified School District Superintendent’s Office (MCUSD) received an email from an unknown person who threatened to bring a gun and bombs to school to harm students and staff. The email MCUSD received was generic and did not include specific school site details. MCUSD contacted the Sheriff’s Office immediately after reading the email.

 

Yesterday multiple school districts throughout California received generalized email threats that were made from a known hacking group called ApophisSquad. At this time the Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office believes MCUSD was one of those districts. The email MCUSD received is identical to the others received by other school districts.

 

The AposhiSquad group has been targeting schools in the United Kingdom over the past few weeks and has announced they are starting to target schools in the United States. ApophisSquad claims to be a “Team of people running around the internet” based in Braubunden, Switzerland, according to their Twitter page.

 

The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office does not have any information at this time that this email threat is credible and actually targeted at MCUSD schools. With the information we have, there is no reason to believe that anyone's safety is threatened at any of the school sites in Mariposa County. At this time our investigation points to this current threat as just one of many unfounded threats received nationwide in the recent months.

 

The Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI are continuing to investigate.

 

Statement from Superintendent of Schools Robin Hopper:

While this threat appears to be a hoax, please rest assured that MCUSD takes all such potential danger seriously. Though always vigilant, staff has been alerted to be extra aware and observant to anything out of place. You can assist as well. Anytime you see or hear something of concern, say something. Report it to the school administration, school staff or Sheriff's Office.

Due to the unfortunate flooding, damage to roads and bridges, and other unsafe conditions resulting from the weather conditions we experienced on March 22nd and the ongoing concern for community safety, it was necessary to postpone the Professional Development inservice planned for MCUSD staff today.  The result of which is that we have had to make the following adjustments to the school calendar:

 

  • March 30th will become a non-student day allowing for staff to participate in the postponed Professional Development day.

  • April 30th will now become the make-up snow day (for February 23rd), so will become a regular school day for students and staff.

 

We would like to thank the Mariposa Sheriff’s Department for monitoring and notifying the School District of the impending emergency probability. We would also like to thank all the MCUSD Staff as always for putting students safety first and coming together to make sure all made it home safely.  

 

We also appreciate your understanding for the necessity of these actions and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please contact your school site if you have any further questions.

 

Thank you,



 

Robin Hopper, Superintendent
