2nd Georgetown Co. student charged with making school threats
GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office says another middle school student was charged with making school threats this week.
After an investigation, a 13-year-old from Rosemary Middle School in Andrews was charged Wednesday and released to her guardian, according to the sheriff’s office.
“Georgetown County School District will determine disciplinary action under its policy,” sheriff’s office spokesman Jason Lesley said.
A 14-year-old from Waccamaw Middle School was also charged with making school threats on Monday.
He was released to his parents following the incident.
Both students will have to appear in court at a later date.
The district issued a statement on the two students charged Wednesday afternoon.
Georgetown County School District considers the safety of our students and staff our top priority. All reports and tips are taken seriously. We work closely with law enforcement to thoroughly investigate every allegation. The threatening statements made at Waccamaw Middle School and Rosemary Middle School were inappropriate; disciplinary action pursuant to the district’s discipline policy was followed along with the students being charged by law enforcement with making threats.
