Dysart Unified School District and El Mirage Police say threats to a high school overnight do not appear to be credible. 

Many concerned students and parents alerted Dysart High School Wednesday night of social media messages voicing a threat to the high school on Thursday. 

The district immediately began working with police, who tell ABC15 the threats do not appear to be credible. 

During the investigation, it was found that the message and phone number was used to make threats to several schools, including those in other states. 

Officers will step up patrols around Dysart High School on Thursday.
