Sheriffs dealing with threat against Hephzibah High

October 5, 2006

Hephzibah High School in Richmond County is now dealing with the latest school threat.

Deputy superintendent James Thomson said the school got a hold of some information around 2 o'clock this afternoon. They're not telling us what that information is or why it alarmed them.

They contacted the sheriff's department, who searched the school with the K-9 team today and then locked the building.

They will have extra security tomorrow, but school is not canceled.

Administrators say they are doing everything possible to keep the building safe.
