Yesterday the Petal school district was made aware of some possible threats after social media posts were circulated that mentioned Petal high school.
“We are actively investigating all possible scenarios through our own police force and with the cooperation of local law enforcement,” said a statement on the Petal School District’s Facebook page. “Additional precautions are being taken to ensure the safety of all students and staff on all campuses. We will have additional uniformed officers on all campuses beginning tomorrow – Monday, February 19th.”
