DINWIDDIE, VA (WWBT) - Extra sheriff deputies are expected to be at Dinwiddie High School again Tuesday morning after an alleged threat made online.
The investigation, which began over the weekend due to a post on Facebook, continued on Monday. So far, charges have not been filed.
Some parents were afraid to send their kids to school on Monday.
"We were a little worried and concerned," says Allie Duran who dropped off her sister, a freshman, at the school. "I feel like if it was a serious problem the school would take care of it, or at least we trust that's what would happen."
Investigators are not officially releasing specific details about the Facebook post, but the school superintendent says the posting did not threaten students.
"Something small turned into something big, but it's better that they cover it, take it seriously rather than not," said one father.
The sheriff's office says the person who did this post and his family are cooperating with the investigation. Students at Dinwiddie High School only have two days of school this week. Thanksgiving break starts Wednesday.
