CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — Extra officers are being called in and parents are being notified after a social media threat for a school was uncovered in Johnston County on Wednesday.

The threat was made for Thursday at Cleveland High School in Clayton and has been deemed to be “not credible” after a Johnston County Sheriff’s Office investigation, school officials said.

Still, teachers were notified of the issue on Wednesday.

Parents are being notified Wednesday night, said Tracey Peedin Jones, spokeswoman for Johnston County Schools.

Additional law enforcement officers will be at Cleveland High School on Thursday “out of an abundance of caution,” Jones said.
