Principal confirms increased patrols amid rumor of threat
GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Stratford High School’s principal notified parents about an increased presence of law enforcement planned for Wednesday.
Principal Jayma Diaz said in a message to parents that students made school administrators aware of a screenshot circulating on social media about school safety.
“The post does not include a school name or information identifying any specific school,” Diaz said in the message, adding that as a precaution, there would be additional law enforcement and Berkeley County School District Security and Emergency Management personnel on campus.
That word comes the same day Hanahan Police confirmed an 18-year-old was arrested on charges relating to having a handgun on the campus of Hanahan High School.
In the Hanahan case, the school resource officer received a tip that a student on campus may have a gun in their possession.
