From Rutherford County Schools

Rutherford County Schools spokesman James Evans sent an email today informing parents about a social media threat situation involving Riverdale High School.

“The administration was notified late this afternoon about a threat that has been posted on social media against Riverdale. We take these situations seriously and law enforcement is aggressively investigating the situation to hopefully determine the parties who are responsible for sending it. If identified, the student will be disciplined thoroughly.

We understand these situations can make parents worry, but we want to assure you that we are not taking it lightly and we will keep you posted as we learn more information.”

“Anytime we have a potential threat to a school, we take these threats seriously,” Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh said. “In situations such as this, the safety of our children and educators is paramount.”

School Resource Officers and the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division detectives are actively investigating the threat.

“We will have enhanced patrol and additional personnel for staffing in and around the school,” Fitzhugh added.
