Oklahoma – A threatening message scrawled on a Putnam City North High School bathroom wall is being investigated Friday, district spokesman Steve Lindley said.
“We don’t think it is credible but we are taking it seriously,” Lindley said.
Students will be excused from classes without being counted absent as long as their parents report they will not be in school Friday, Lindley said.
He said parents were picking up students at the school, 11800 N Rockwell Ave., after hearing about the threat Friday morning.
Putnam City campus police are investigating as well as school officials. Extra campus police officers were at the school Friday morning.
Lindley said district officials will try to keep classes and activites going as usual.
“We don’t want the distraction to take away from the activities of the school day,” Lindley said.
Threats were reported at other schools in the Oklahoma City area this week including Norman North High School on Monday and Tuesday.
