MADISONVILLE, La. -- School and law enforcement officials are investigating an alleged threat by two students against Madisonville Junior High School.
According to St. Tammany Parish School District spokesperson Meredith Mendez, the district learned of the alleged threat Wednesday evening, and law enforcement was contacted. "At this time, no credible threat has been found, however, those two students will remain out of school until both investigations are complete," she said.
"We continue to work closely with law enforcement officers, and will be taking all necessary disciplinary actions to ensure the safety of everyone at our school," said Principal Dwyane Kern in a letter on the school's website. 'We take all threats, whether real or a hoax, very seriously."
Mendez said the school was not placed on lockdown, though a robocall was sent to parents Thursday morning and Kern's letter will be going home with students Thursday.
