The school system's police department investigated reports of a threat and found the situation involved the Concord High School in Concord, New Hampshire.

Omaha police said Friday that they had investigated dozens of threats against local schools or students since the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida. "It's scary", said one parent. Susan Ferrara's daughter saw the unsettling messages on a popular social media app. "I mean they are always on it and they take care of our kids and of course when I come and drop my kids off I pray over the whole community, so I know they are covered", Mitchell said. The school district sent out alerts and emails Thursday night notifying parents that officials were working with law enforcement to look into the matter. However, they emphasized that they take school shooting threats very seriously. But Deptford Township isn't the only school district dealing with rumors and threats of violence. The student has been charged with making a terroristic threat.

This is James Kuzma, principal at Rancho High School. Extra adults were also outside the school building when students were walking to classes.

Donald Trump suggest arming teachers to prevent Florida high like shooting
Reiterating his argument that the only deterrent was to arm teachers , he said: "A "gun free" school is a magnet for bad people". The president suggested that some educators could be trained in the use of firearms to deter potential shooters.

"I wanted to make you aware of information that we received early this morning".

Police say they recovered a shotgun at the woman's home.

"The consistent presence of our armed school police officers is a crime deterrent", according to the district, "and is an additional avenue and resource to students who often provide officers with information that stops illegal behavior from occurring".
