BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — An online threat is leading to increase school police presence Thursday at schools across South Palm Beach County.

Parents contacting BocaNewsNow.com say they are being told that a non-specific threat was seen by a student who reported the threat to police.

Boca Raton Community High administrators sent the following message to parents late Wednesday night, but stressed Boca High wasn’t specifically named:

“Good evening parents and guardians,
I want to make you aware of a vague school
threat that is circulating on social media.
It’s important to note that this threat does not
mention Boca Raton Community High School, orany school, by name.

The social media post in question was brought tothe attention of our administration and law
enforcement by a student who saw it and
became concerned.

School District Police are currently investigating this situation and attempting to identify the source of the post.

While this threat is in no way specific to Boca
Raton Community High School, there will be an increased police presence on our campus
tomorrow out of an abundance of caution.
As always, please reach out to me with any
questions or concerns.”

There had been official statement from school district officials. It is unclear if the alleged threat is focused on all grades.

Schools tend to be on a higher alert for threats after a school shooting, Several students died in a shooting this week at a school in Oxford, MI.
