A threat found at Richmond Hill High School has law enforcement and the school taking extra precautions.

The threat is now making the rounds on social media. It reads "I'm done. Don't come to school the 28th or they'll (sic) be consequences. I warned you." It was reportedly found late Monday in one of the boys' restrooms.

"School officials are aware of the threat," said a statement released by Bryan County Schools shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday. "Please know any threat directed at our students, staff or school will not be tolerated. RHHS administration along with the Richmond Hill Police Department are actively investigating the threat and providing additional security measures."

A Facebook post from the RHPD said it has modified its security plans and patrols at the school and is meeting with district officials. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at (912) 756-5645.

Bryan County Schools also sent the statement via text shortly before 9 a.m. to all parents and guardians who had previously submitted their cell phone numbers for the high school's notification list. 

As of 10 a.m., no extracurricular activities at the school for Tuesday had been called off.

A former RHHS student and recent South Effingham High School graduate was arrested at his Guyton home last week for making terroristic threats in Effingham County, and a threat of violence at Bryan County High School made in December was reported to the Bryan County Sheriff's Office last week. That threat was apparently made by a student shortly before the first semester ended, although he now attends school in Bacon County.
