Schools in state note threats since midweek

The student was taken into custody around 7 Bear Creek High School.

Four threats had been reported in the county since the weekend, two of those were proven to be unfounded.

The arrest in Epping is at least the second locally involving a juvenile accused of making a school threat since the Parkland, Florida, shooting last week. "As a result of it, detectives did investigate the threat to see if it was credible or not".

"A Pasco High School Student was arrested today for threatening violence against the school". The posts were brought to the school's attention on Tuesday. "I once again urge parents to have a conversation with their children regarding the seriousness of threatening posts". The student was taken into custody by the Louisa County Sheriff's Office within an hour and was charged with a Class 6 felony.

The juvenile faces a preliminary charge of intimidation. However, a source close to the investigation said the student is believed to reside in either Sussex Borough or Wantage.

Threats occurred elsewhere in the state, including in West Palm Beach.

Late Monday night, Heritage High Principal Carrie Wells issued a statement to parents saying that "Police have worked with the student's family to confirm that the student has no access to weapons of any kind".

Even with his subpar short program, Chen's total of 297.35 for both programs was higher than Hanyu's 280.09 in 2014. Chen scored 215.08 points, allowing him leapfrog the rankings table, from 17th to fifth place.

Police arrested the male student after he told another student his idea. The district crisis response plan is solid, and all schools continue to conduct active threat drills.

Some students have allegedly used social media to make threats.

The investigation has ended and the correct consequences are being given to the student who made the threat.

"I guess the message here is, we're not playing", police Lt. Scott McKee said.

Threats that, from personal experience from having my oldest in public school, can happen several times a week.

But, Chief Fisher said the boy in question never posted a threat on social media.
