Extra security was on hand Friday at Center Middle School in Kansas City after threats were made on social media.
Kansas City police said that they received information Thursday night that the threats were made against students and faculty at the school, 326 E. 103rd St.
Police are now working with school security to identify the person who made the threats. Officers were on school property Friday to ensure safety.
The school’s principal, Linda Williams, sent this message out Friday:
“Thank you for trusting us with your children this morning. You should be proud of the way they came in the school and interacted with our teachers and administrators. We did check all the students and adults as they entered the school and the police were here to monitor and provide extra safety precautions. Throughout the day we will be talking with students and parents to continue investigating who made the Snapchat threat.
We also want to stress that we take very seriously social media threats. Please help us work with your children in talking about responsible use of social media and that we are accountable for what we post on social media. Again, thank you for trusting us with your children today. Everything is going well and we are moving through our day normally with some extra precautions.”
