Additional law enforcement presence at Cartersville High Thursday morning

September 11, 2019–11:00 p.m.


On Wednesday, Cartersville City Schools administrators learned of a rumor circulating on social media threatening the possibility of a violent act occurring at a high school on Thursday.

Working in connection with local law enforcement authorities, CCS has determined that this rumor began in another school district and is not associated with or referring to Cartersville High School.

Furthermore, law enforcement officials have found the threat to have no credibility.

However, out of an abundance of caution, additional law enforcement officers will be present at Cartersville High School Thursday.
