Late last evening Godby Principal Desmond Cole became aware of an online threat made against the school and immediately reported it to Law Enforcement.
The student involved has been arrested, suspended and will be recommended for expulsion. A search of the student’s residence by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office revealed no weapons on the premise.
“In light of recent events, this news is very troubling. Anytime a student makes a threat against one of our schools there will be serious disciplinary actions and potential criminal charges,” said Superintendent Rocky Hanna. “We were made aware of this situation because someone saw it and reported it to Godby High Administration. Please communicate within your family the seriousness of social media threats. We continue to ask our community, if you see something say something. The safety and security of our schools will always be our top priority.”
