Increased law enforcement presence planned at Berkeley County school on Monday
MONCKS CORNER, S.C. —
An anonymous message regarding campus has prompted leaders at Berkeley Middle School to have an increased law enforcement presence on Monday.
"While we have not yet confirmed the identity of the individual who wrote the anonymous message concerning our campus, we have extensively investigated the matter and want to assure you that we are taking all precautionary measures to continue ensuring student safety," Principal Mike Wilkerson said in a Facebook message posted on Sunday.
The message did not outline the nature of the message or by what means it was conveyed. It's unclear what investigative steps were taken regarding the anonymous message. Students are asked to attend on a normal schedule. The principal asked for "trust" and "support."
"Your children matter to us and we will take any threat to their security seriously," the Facebook post stated.
ABC News 4 has reached out to the Berkeley County School District and Moncks Corner Police Department for additional information.
Similar precautions were taken at Berkeley High School after a student received a threatening message on social media in October. Officials say an investigation revealed the threat was not credible.
