Six schools under Level 1 lock down following online threat


Multiple Griffin-Spalding County schools have been placed on a Level 1 lock down following threats made online.

According to Capt. Dwayne Jones, of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office, the schools include Rehoboth Road Middle School, Kennedy Road Middle School, Cowan Road Middle School, Griffin High School, Spalding High School and Griffin Christian Academy.

The threat made Monday morning was posted to the same social media account as a threat that resulted in the full evacuations of Rehoboth Road Middle School and Spalding High School on March 12.

Authorities reiterated that Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating to identify and locate the person or persons responsible for these threats.

The schools under Level 1 lock down have not been evacuated, but deputies are present at each.

Parents should not go to these schools at this time as they will not be permitted entrance.

The GRIP will continue to follow this ongoing situation and report additional information as it becomes available.
