A threat was found scrawled on a bathroom wall at Perry-Lecompton High School this afternoon.
The threat said the action would take place on Friday, and school district officials are taking no chances. Supt. Steve Johnston said that students at both the high school and the middle school would be required to enter a single entrance and go through metal detectors that are supervised by law enforcement officers from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
"It was a vague threat about tomorrow," Johnston said Thursday afternoon.
Johnston said he didn't know who found the threat. Friday is the eighth anniversary of the shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., and comes just days after the shooting at Virginia Tech that killed 32 students. There was no explicit reference to the Virginia Tech shootings, though, Johnston said.
