The Robertson County Sheriff’s department has been working with the school district investigating possible threats against two of the county’s high schools.
On Friday, Feb. 2, in two unrelated incidents, there were threats made to White House Heritage High School and Greenbrier High School, according to sheriff spokesman Ryan Martin.
“A juvenile from each school, both male, has been charged with making terroristic threats,” Martin said. “The investigations were handled quickly and the suspects were located promptly. There appeared to be no connection between the two incidents.”
In a release by Robertson County Schools, the potential threats were not named.
The school district is urging parents to be aware of their children’s social media involvement.
“Thankfully, none of these were credible and none of our students were ever in any danger,” the release stated. “However, please know that charges have been made in a couple of these situations and we will not tolerate this type of behavior in our district.”
Threats of this nature are zero-tolerance offenses which could include a consequence of expulsion from school for one calendar year, officials said.
“We will continue to take all threatening posts seriously and make safety a constant priority,” the release stated.
Both suspects were cited and will be required to appear in Robertson County Juvenile Court on their charges, according to Martin.
