CARNEGIE (KDKA) – An increased security presence will be in place today at Carlynton Junior / Senior High School after a threat surrounding a shootout has surfaced.
This threat is of concern because it was specific – with the names of the students inscribed on a bathroom wall.
When students show up for class this morning, they will see an added layer of security with the presence of Robinson Township police officers.
In a letter sent to families, the district says school officials will search backpacks and other personal belongings of students.
They say this additional move will delay students’ entry into the building and could impact elementary pickup times.
District leaders say the threat was written on a bathroom wall at Junior / Senior High School. The threat had a list with the first names of five students, the date October 1, and a drawing of a gun.
The neighborhood says the families of students whose first names look at what was written on the wall have been notified.
Meanwhile, it wasn’t until last week that the district found graffiti in a high school toilet that said “September 26th, CHS goes boom!”
Robinson Township police searched the building and stayed there a day later for safety.
Police will investigate this latest threat. School leaders are asking anyone who knows anything or has additional information about this threat to contact them.
