Mountain Pointe High School officials say the individuals responsible for school threats last week have been identified. 

Principal Tomika Banks sent a letter to parents Monday addressing the updates to the i nvestigation into social media posts threatening the Ahwatukee-area school

The principal says police are still investigating and no arrests have been made, however, they believe the posts were made by students of the school. 

"These students are facing consequences as outlined in the district's discipline policies," the letter reads, noting that specifics about the discipline cannot be disclosed due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. 

"I want you to know that we take all threats, real or perceived, very seriously and act as quickly as possible to hold those responsible accountable."

Other Valley schools have been the targets of recent online threats, as well. 

Last month, two teenagers were charged with felonies after posting threats online toward Mesa schools.
