Principal says threat against school is not credible

A social media threat against a Moore County School turned out to be noncredible, according to the school’s principal.

Pinecrest High School Principal Stefanie Phillips sent a message to families on Tuesday. 

“Very early this morning the Moore County School Police were notified, by a federal law enforcement agency that regularly monitors social media, that a threat directed at Pinecrest High School had been made on a social media platform,” said Phillips. “Prior to the start of the school day, and with the support of the Moore County Sheriff’s Department, the threat was confirmed to be noncredible. There is no threat to the safety of students or staff. Please speak with your child and remind them of the serious consequences that can result from making any verbal or written threats on social media.”
