Police are investigating a threat made at Coronado Middle School.

An anonymous written threat against a staff member was discovered on Wednesday morning at the school, according to Coronado Police Department.

Officials said the school is safe while they perform an open investigation. Police say they’re working closely with the Coronado school to resolve the issue. No further details have been released.

Principal Jay Maquard emailed parents at the school, calling the threat "sad and disturbing."

Superintendent Dr. Jeff Felix said the school is conducting business as usual, but did not give other details citing the ongoing investigation.

Parent Sharon Kitchener told NBC 7 she felt the school had handled the situation swiftly and appropriately.

“They took care of it very quickly. I didn't feel my child was threatened at any point. It sounded like the police were involved immediately and that was it,” said Kitchener.

Earlier this month, a 12-year-old Poway student at Twin Peaks Middle School emailed a threatening message to a school administrator saying he planned to shoot a teacher and 23 students. He was detained and his parents later apologized for his actions.

A student at Pershing Middle School made a threat earlier this week targeting "popular kids" and was removed from school earlier this week.
