A threat was written on a restroom wall today at the Knoxville High School.

It stated: “everyone is going to die thursday.” The report of the threat came to the school administration during the lunch period. Knoxville School’s Superintendent Cassi Pearson tells KNIA/KRLS News an investigation is underway in cooperation with the Knoxville Police Department to determine the credibility of the threat. Pearson says the school will take any precautions necessary to ensure the safety of all of its students and staff. She says a decision of whether or not classes will be held tomorrow will be made later today, and parents of students will receive more information once the investigation is complete. Pearson says the district does not feel that students are currently at risk, and that the safety of students and staff is their top priority. Precautionary actions are being undertaken.
