Police say they heightened security at the high school Thursday. Regardless, Salina USD 305 takes all threats seriously and continues working with law enforcement.

Springfield Police Chief Lee Graf posted a response to the threats on its Springfield Police Division Facebook page.

The Woodlan student's threat had been taken down from the social media site before she saw it, Kelly said, so she doesn't know the specific language used.

Confusion about a planned student walkout at Springfield High School triggered unfounded fears Tuesday that a school shooting might be imminent. Most the departments saying the post originated out of their states. "While investigating this claim, we find no credible information to believe that this threat is legitimate". None of which, however, has resulted in any actual danger, but they are being taken seriously following the February 14 mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

Authorities in Sarasota are alerting the public that a social media threat circulating through the city indicating a shooting at "SHS" is not a local threat.

No threat was identified, but police continued to monitor the campus throughout Tuesday.

The Snapchat and Facebook incidents happened less than 24 hours after an 11-year-old Santa Cruz boy barricaded himself inside a classroom at Bay View Elementary School.

According to Anderson, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is working diligently with agencies across the region to determine the origin of the "SHS" threat, find the person responsible, and hold them accountable.
