After rumors of violence against Neshaminy High School and Council Rock South High School, the Pennsbury School District released the following statement about the threats:
Several of our area high schools are the targets of rumors pertaining to school violence today. Much of this is theorized by authorities to be fueled by unrelated events, such as the Sandy Hook tragedy and the 12-21-12 end-of-the-world rumor. We wish to thank our alert parents, students, and staff who reported information as it came in so that we could follow up accordingly. Pennsbury maintains close working relationships with our local police departments, and in this type of situation, you may notice there is increased police presence in our schools and ongoing communication with all parties involved.
After a thorough investigation, which began last evening, no direct statements were attributable to any individuals here in Pennsbury. No credible threat was established for Pennsbury High School. Police and administrators agreed that as a precautionary move, added security would be put into place today. School opened on time, and students are attending classes as usual.
