Crenshaw Co. Schools Cancels Classes Following Unspecified Threat

Parking lots at Crenshaw County Schools were empty Tuesday, after authorities came across what they deemed a potentially threatening social media post.

The call to cancel classes for the day was out of “an abundance of caution” and “due to the uncertainty of the information provided” according to a message on the school systems website.

Crenshaw County School Superintendent, Dr. Boyd English says  “we were notified by authorities at the local level who had received information from state and federal officials of a potential threat that caused some concern for the safety of our students and our faculty”.

Details of the potential threat remained vague Tuesday, but officials say the threat did not target any specific school. The FBI is heading up the investigation, so far no arrests have been made.

Officials have not announced if Crenshaw County Schools will be open tomorrow.The superintendent says the school system is consulting law enforcement to determine if they think it is safe.
