Police monitor Bucks County school after reported social media threat

- Police are monitoring a Bucks County high school after threats circulated on social media.

Investigators say threatening messages were sent around Pennsbury High School Tuesday and local police have been monitoring the school Wednesday morning.

Administrators have not said what the messages specifically said but according to the school district superintendent, whoever wrote the messages threatened to hurt him or herself and not hurt others.

FOX 29’s Sabina Kuriakose spoke to a student at the Bucks County high school to find out how the students were feeling.

“It will be a little tense today,” said Molly, a junior who attends the high school.

The Falls Township Police Department issued a statement responding to the concern. The statement reassured that there would be heavy police presence at the high school and that the student’s safety is their main priority. 

Parents also received an email last night from the school district. The email urged parents to tell their children to follow the school day as any normal day, but to be on the lookout for suspicious behavior. 

“We know the school’s going to take care of it, like I’m not scared to come to school. I feel safe and I know appropriate action will be taken by the school,” said Molly.
