Franklin Pierce Schools told families late Monday that extra law enforcement will be at the high school and throughout the district Tuesday, after alleged threats.
The extra sheriff’s deputies are a precaution after two students were investigated during school Monday for allegedly making threats against the high school’s administration, district spokesman Willie Painter said.
“There is nothing that leads us to believe that there is a credible threat,” Painter said.
The students investigated won’t be at school Tuesday and will face discipline, according to a release sent to Franklin Pierce families.
All schools in the district will run on their regular schedules.
“The district understands and will respect a parent’s decision on whether to send their child to school tomorrow,” Painter said in an email.
Further details were not immediately available.
