Per Emanuel County Sheriff’s Office:
“There are reports on social media related to a potential threat occurring at ‘SHS’ tomorrow. The Emanuel County Sheriff’s Office, Swainsboro Police Department and Emanuel County Board of Education have worked together to confirm that this threat was not intended for Swainsboro High School. Investigators have made contact with officials in Springfield, Ohio, who are confident that the threat was directed at a school within their jurisdiction. They have also identified a suspect in the matter.
While we do not feel that this is a credible threat to our school system, parents, and students will see extra deputies along Tiger Trail tomorrow as a precaution.
We take every threat seriously and ask that if you see something, say something…”
