ALTOONA (KWWL) - Authorities will bolster security Monday at a suburban Des Moines high school in the wake of anonymous threat made on a social media app.
   The Altoona Police Department had received a report about a threat on Yik Yak Saturday and passed it along to Pleasant Hill police. Pleasant Hill Police Department spokesman Adam Choat says someone said in the post that there will be a shooting at Southeast Polk High School.
   Choat says officials must treat the threat as real. He recommends that students remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
   The district said in an email to student and parents that police "are taking appropriate measures to keep our staff and students safe."
   Choat says police have been unable to track down the author of the threat.
