Her emotions changed from confusion to fear when she realized what she was looking at, she said.
"After I realized he was completely serious I was scared," she said. "It was unbelievable that someone would actually place such a threat to Holy Cross.

Roy said she "hardly slept" on Tuesday, as she had questions about whether or not she would be sending her children to school and was worried how everything would turn out.
"I had many mixed feelings and was just trying to comprehend how someone [could] actually think of something like this," she said.
Roy said as a youth worker and parent, she feels the map was someone reaching out for help but said at the same time, parents have to be concerned for everyone at the school.

"And not just Holy Cross, any school in general," she said.
Saskatoon Police Service Staff Sgt. Grant Obst said police were made aware of the threat at around 11 p.m. on Tuesday, noting officers were quickly able to defuse the situation and take the teen into custody.
"At this point, our investigators are confident that there is no threat to public safety," he said. "We're continuing to talk with the young lad and we'll see where the investigation ends up."
Obst said it's his understanding the map was seen by "numerous people," which created anxiety and concern in the community. He said some of the comments posted to the map included people providing insight on suggested weapons and explosives, which he called "disturbing."
Police said they're still working to determine the boy's motives for creating the map.
"When the investigators look at this, especially when you consider all the circumstances, when you consider the age of the young man, you have to make a determination: was this a serious threat, or was this an extremely, poorly thought out joke or somebody's idea of fun?"
Obst said while police and the community are taking the threat seriously, there is early indication the map may have been a joke, saying there's "two sides" to the threat.
When asked if he had a message for other teens who feel this type of act may be funny, Obst said they should think again, as they can cause immense anxiety and fear in a community.
"For God's sake, give your head a shake," he said.
