SNELLVILLE -- Officials with Gwinnett County Public Schools beefed up security at South Gwinnett High School on Thursday after school staff discovered threatening graffiti in a restroom earlier in the week.
Local police agencies also were called out to inspect the school after the written threat was discovered, which contained a message that something would happen at the facility on Thursday.
District Spokesperson Sloan Roach said that precautions were taken to ensure the safety of the students and that class schedules were not affected by the threat.
Roach said police thoroughly searched the school and found nothing to indicate students were in danger.
"We took this matter seriously," Roach said. "We take the safety of our children seriously."
She said local police as well as school resource officers are currently investigating to determine who made the threat.
