A woman is accused of leaving threatening notes around Wayne High School earlier this week that reportedly hinted there would be a shooting at the school.

Aisha Traylor, 39, of Dayton, was arraigned Thursday in Montgomery County Municipal Court - Eastern Division in Huber Heights for attempting to induce panic at a school.

Three notes were found Tuesday morning at Wayne High School that indicated there would be a shooting at lunchtime, according to a criminal complaint. School security video helped to identify Traylor as the suspect, Huber Heights police and school officials said.

“Fortunately, it has been determined that there was, at no point, an actual, credible threat to the safety of our students, staff or school,” the school stated in a message earlier this week.

Traylor worked as a contract employee for YWCA Dayton, which confirmed Thursday that she was immediately fired following her arrest.

“When Traylor was interviewed she denied writing the notes, but stated she set them out because she did not feel like working,” court documents read.

The YWCA Dayton program is a collaboration with the high school that sends four program leaders one day a week to work with freshmen on social-emotional learning topics, such as leadership, life skills, healthy relationships, healthy communication, peer influences, self-esteem and positive online culture, according to a statement from Huber Heights Schools.

The program is in its second year at the school, but has been paused as the district and YWCA Dayton leaders determine the next steps.

Traylor is held on $100,000 bond in the Montgomery County Jail.
