Hercules High School Community Incident October 18


Good evening WCCUSD community,

I am writing to you about an anonymous threat to the Hercules High School community that was posted online through social media over the weekend that warned people to stay away from the school and that it would be in danger on Monday, October 18, 2021.

We immediately alerted the Hercules Police Department, and officers were stationed at the school today. The Hercules Police Department continues to investigate.

At this point from the information we have, we know that no other school communities are at risk for this particular threat. 

We do understand the fear, anxiety and trauma that occur when an incident like this occurs, and we are making extra support from our central office available, including counselors, security and leadership. We continue to be in touch with law enforcement as well. 

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and we encourage everyone to return to campus on Tuesday and resume a normal school day.
