School officials address rumors of a threat at North Sand Mountain School
HIGDON, Alabama (WDEF) – Stories have been circling on Sand Mountain about a threat against a school.
Now North Sand Mountain School officials are addressing it.
They posted this message on Facebook on Monday night.
“To the parents and concerned citizens of the NSM community:
NSM is working closely with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Jackson County Board of Education to provide necessary safety precautions at North Sand Mountain School. School will go on as scheduled tomorrow, January 17. The situation is being constantly monitored, and we can assure you that your children’s safety is the #1 priority of North Sand Mountain School and the Jackson County Board of Education.”
We have gotten several calls from concerned parents and relatives about a lockdown last week due by a trespassing incident involving a home schooled student.
The story has gone around that he posted threatening photos on his Facebook page, but authorities haven’t found any such photos.
Callers have also told us that there is an extra law enforcement presence at the school today.
