Cecil Township police announced through social media that the woman charged Friday afternoon with threatening to “shoot up” an elementary school is unlikely to be released on bail.

“Due to the conditions of bail set during Amanda Jarosh’s arraignment, it’s unlikely she would be released from jail, but we will have an officer at Hills Hendersonville on Monday,” police said.

Police arrested the 39-year-old woman Friday after receiving a report that an elementary school parent, later identified as Jarosh, made the threat earlier in the week.

The Canon-McMillan School District said in a statement, “The caller reported that the parent of a district student made a threat to quote – shoot up the school – with no additional details. Police were notified immediately, and following a prompt investigation the identified individual was charged and taken into custody,”

“Police and school personnel are confident that there is no threat to the safety of our students, staff or the school community,” the school district superintendent said in a statement.

Police said they did not find Jarosh in possession of any firearms when they arrested her.

Jarosh remains in the Washington County Jail, facing charges of terroristic threats and disorderly conduct and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Nov. 15.
