The schools targeted include Murphy High School, Baker High School, Davidson High School and Theodore High School.

The post also emphasized that if a threat is deemed credible by law enforcement, that all parents and school administration will be promptly made aware.

Schools have been on high alert lately with threats and rumors circulating around the Coast., a website run by Alabama Media Group, is reporting today about a Facebook threat determined to be a hoax that originated from Springfield, Ohio. The student was identified and officers responded to the residence and took the teen into custody.

"We've been working with the Woodbury Police Department", she said.

On Feb. 14, a student who had been expelled from Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Fla., returned with an assault rifle and used it to kill 17 students and adults, injuring many others, local authorities say.

Jerome police received a report on Monday about threats made to a juvenile over social media.

"This, in turn, led to rumors and miscommunication regarding student discipline issues at other schools in our district", said Smith. The Snapchat post was sent out at about 5 a.m. SPD officers located the senior at school. Although immediate action was taken in all these incidents, parents say the situation has forced them to have tough but necessary conversations with their children. "It makes the job of protecting our students, faculty, and staff harder, because we have to devote time and resources to defuse chaos created by false information that should be spent on making sure our students, faculty, and staff are safe and secure".
