Wasatch County School District and police were again notified of a social media post that made reference to school violence Wednesday.
Police said the student has been charged with one count of making a terroristic threat, a class D felony.
According to Heber City Police Chief Dave Booth, the student didn't understand the consequences of this type of post.
Big Sky High School hosted a school safety forum Thursday night to discuss proactive steps toward security for students and staff.
Monday's discussion took place less than two weeks after 17 people were killed in the February 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. School officials called parents about the threat and told them that they were allowed to pick their children up. The student also stated that they got the idea from watching school shooting pranks on YouTube.
School officials laid everything out from threat assessment procedures to the process of reporting threats.
"Scott Chambers went to the school and started the investigation into the matter", police said in the post. We appreciate your continued dialogue with your students in reference to these subjects and we thank you for your partnership. Hours after launching an investigation, police identified the individual believed to have made the threat.
Gage was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a charge of terrorizing.
The 17-minute duration is for the 17 students and staff at the Florida school who were killed by a gunman. They missed two weeks of school following the February 14 mass shooting that killed several students and teachers. For purposes of the release I will refer to him as "Student A".
