Chesterfield police are investigating after a threat was found written in the restroom wall at Robious Middle School.

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - Chesterfield police have identified the student who they say wrote a message on the restroom wall at Robious Middle School.

The principal sent a letter home to parents regarding the message that was found on Friday.

“There was no credible threat against our school, and appropriate student and legal consequences will be pursued,” the letter said.

To avoid compromising the investigation, officials did not say the content of the message but said they are not aware of any credible threat against the middle school.

Out of the abundance of caution, there will be an increased police presence at the school this week.

Read the full message to parents below:

“Our administrative team and police are investigating an inappropriate message found written on the wall in one of our restrooms yesterday afternoon. Parents have shared that pictures of the message have appeared on several social media accounts. To avoid compromising the investigation, we are not discussing the content of the message; however, it is important to note that we are not aware of any credible threat against our school. If your child has any information to share, please contact our administration this weekend or Monday. I can be reached at Derek_Wasnock@ccpsnet.net. Out of an abundance of caution, we have requested additional police presence for early next week. We will continue to have conversations with our students about thinking about what they are saying before they write it or post it. Even when joking, words can create a tremendous disruption to our learning environment. We would ask that you have this same conversation with your child this weekend. Thank you for your continued support of Robious Middle!”
