GFX – School Threats

A 16-year-old has been charged with making terrorist threats against the Florence Freshman Center Saturday.

Florence City Schools administrators were made aware of a threat on social media against the Florence Freshman Center on Saturday, Feb. 22. School administrators contacted the Florence Police Department who looked into the allegation.

The 16-year-old Florence Freshman Center student was taken into custody Saturday night and charged with Terrorist Threats. The student was taken to the Tennessee Valley Juvenile Detention Center.

Florence City Schools wants to remind parents to discuss with their children the importance of making good, positive decisions every day instead of negative choices that could get them in trouble and jeopardize their futures. Whether a threat is made via text, email, or posted on social media, it will be taken very seriously.

In addition to any possible criminal charges a student may face, if it is discovered they have made a threat against any Florence City Schools campus or fellow students, they will also face disciplinary action as defined in the FCS Parent/Student Handbook. A copy of the Parent/Student Handbook can be found on our website at www.florencek12.org.
