Lee High Schoolers Stay Home After Threat, Despite Extra Security
Extra security could be found at Robert E. Lee High School today after a message was found last week that had a warning for students attending class today. That has some students telling us they are afraid to go to school.
It's after school hours now, but even during school hours , the student parking lot behind Lee High School did not look like it usually does on a Monday. Instead, it was bare -- after a warning was found in the school bathrooms threatening students' safety for those who came today. And some parents say keeping their children home was the right decision.
Threatening messages inside the girls and boys bathroom at Lee High School reads, "I advise all students to not come to school on November 18. I will destroy all of my enemies on that day" -- it's why Lee high school parent, Joel Gudino, and his children spent the day at home.
Shawn Streety says the heightened security is still not enough for him to send his son to school.
Both the Gudino and Streety families tell us they're still not sure if they'll send their children to school tomorrow.
Montgomery Public School officials want to assure parents they will continue to have this extra security until they find the person who wrote the threat.
School system leaders and Montgomery police will meet with Lee High School parents Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the school's auditorium to discuss their investigation into the threat.
