The message was found a week and a half ago near Charlotte Wood Middle School threatening to harm students today, May 8. Two similar spray-painted messages were found near schools in the past week.
The principal of Charlotte Wood Middle School said he is working closely with Danville police to make sure today is safe. The principal has briefed parents on what is happening. They've also postponed a school dance. The principal did that to make sure students and parents feel comfortable so they can have a good time.
The principal says even though this is likely a hoax, they have to and they are taking it seriously and security will be beefed up today.
Police think they're the work of a copycat, but they aren't taking any chances. School officials say they are confident today will be a safe day.
