INDEPENDENCE, La. (AP) - Security has been increased at Independence High School after two students were arrested and accused of making threats against the school.
Tangipahoa Parish Schools Superintendent Mark Kolwe told The Advocate in a written statement on Thursday that Principal Hugh Wallace said the students' grandmother called the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office Tuesday after finding written threats in the boys' room at home.
Kolwe did not disclose the nature of the threats or the students' names.
Due to the grandmother's concerns, Kolwe she kept the boys at home.
Authorities searched the house, found the written threats and booked the two students into the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center.
