KEX radio just interviewed the Salem-Keizer School District Superintendent Kay Baker. Baker has posted an open letter to Salem-Keizer parents on the district web site. Part of her letter follows:

As you may be aware, a recent news story regarding information found in Iraq on U.S. schools mentioned Salem, Oregon. I want to take a moment to share further details about this situation. First of all, there was no threat made against our district or schools. We have not received any information that directly said or even implied that there was a threat against our local schools.

Salem-Keizer reviewed all of their security and emergency plans, something that they do every fall.

KEX further reported that information from Homeland Security now indicates that there was no connection between the owner of the laptop found and either Iraqi insurgents or al Qaeda operatives.
