Superintendent Jean Neal said on a now deleted social media post, “Pine Crest office received a shooting threat over the phone yesterday afternoon. The threat was reported to the Georgetown Police. Law enforcement investigated the shooting threat and I was notified last night that the caller was arrested.”
Georgetown Police Department took the threat seriously.
“The person who made the threat is a parent who took issue that her child received detention. I am deeply saddened that our staff member had to be on the receiving end of a shooting threat and excessive profanity. The safety of staff and students is paramount and threats of this nature will not be tolerated. I am thankful for the continual support of the Georgetown Police Department.” said Neal.
