Threat made against East Paulding High School | Crime
DALLAS, Ga. -- The Paulding County Sheriff's Office is investigating a threat made against East Paulding High School.
Sheriff's Cpl. Ashley Henson said an anonymous message written on a bathroom wall indicated there will be a shooting at the school on Friday.
Henson said the message was not substantiated, but school officials and the sheriff's office take all threats seriously.
Classes will take place as scheduled Friday at the high school, but the school district ordered extra law enforcement officers to be on campus.
Henson said the sheriff's office encourages parents and students to have open lines of communication with faculty, staff and law enforcement any time a threat is made. Parents should also discuss the serious consequences of making shooting threats with their children, Henson said.
