“No Credible Threat” Found Wednesday at Rome, Georgia High School Following Investigation

After evacuating the campus on Wednesday at Armuchee High School, the Floyd County Board of Education reported that there was “no credible threat” after an investigation.

The evacuation took place on Wednesday afternoon and the Rome News Tribune reported that there was Floyd County Police and the Georgia State Patrol were on the scene at the high school.

Wednesday evening the Floyd County School System released this statement:

Good evening Armuchee Nation,

Earlier today, a student reported to a teacher that they had found a note of a threatening nature in the bathroom. The teacher immediately reported this to an administrator and the administrators then reported this to our School Resource Officer, Superintendent, and other appropriate authorities. At this point, we made the announcement to clear the building in order to ensure the safety of all students and staff.

Earlier this week, on Monday, the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department investigated a social media post about a supposed threat at Summerville Middle School.  Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader and School Supt. Jared Hosmer say that after an investigation, they determined there was no credible threat.  The juvenile involved in that incident was not allowed back to school on Tuesday.
