Denton High School says an unfounded threat led school officials to call off a cheering rally scheduled for Thursday morning.
In a letter to parents, school officials said a student spotted a threat directed at the campus on a “popular social media platform.”
“While the threats have not been verified by the Denton Police Department, please be aware that we are currently working on details and an investigation,” school officials wrote in the letter.
Further details of the threat, including whether a specific person or group participating in the support rally was targeted, were not disclosed.
Although the cheer rally has been canceled, classes at Denton High School are being held on a regular schedule.
“The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance to us and we wanted to assure you that at no time was there a danger to our campus and our students or staff were not in danger. “, wrote the school officials in the letter.
This week Denton High School is playing Denton Ryan High School. Other than the canceled cheering rally, no changes have been announced for the other scheduled events.
