(Annapolis, MD) –WNAV– Last night the Anne Arundel County Public School System posted the following message to Families and Employees,…in response to TikTok posts warning of shooting and bomb threats at schools around the country today.. Here’s the AACPS Message:
Quote: “This message is to remind you that our school system continues to work with county police and the Maryland Center for School Safety as it relates to the circulating anonymous social media messages regarding threats against schools that are spreading nationwide. At this time, there continues to be no credibility to the viral postings. Additionally, none of our schools has received a credible threat.
Out of abundance of caution and to help alleviate anxiety on Friday, December 17, county police will be making additional checks at schools throughout the county. The presence of county police officers at our school is certainly welcome by our school system and should not be interpreted as being in response to any credible threat. Please know that our school system will notify families of any credible threats and action being taken in response to those threats should that situation occur.
We are expecting a normal instructional day, and appreciate the efforts of our students, families, staff, and partners in law enforcement and the community at large to help make that happen.”
