HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) - The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office has determined there is no discernable threat to students after a threatening message was found in the girls' bathroom at Hilton Head Island Middle School on Thursday.
Earlier in the day, school administrators became aware of writing on the wall of a female bathroom advising students to not attend school on Friday, as there would be killings.
Sheriff's Office investigators say based on their findings, they're encouraging students to attend school on Friday. Additional law enforcement personnel will be on and around the school's campus throughout the day Friday, to include SROs, patrol deputies, and investigators.
BCSO and the Beaufort County School District urge students to report suspicious activity and threats of violence immediately to law enforcement and school administrators. They ask anyone who has information on the identity of the person who wrote the threat on the wall to call the sheriff's office at 843.524.2777 or Crimestoppers at 1.888.CrimeSC if wishing to remain anonymous.
