Hammond High Magnet School will be open on Tuesday after it closed Monday "due to a possible threat on campus," Tangipahoa Parish School System reported in a Facebook post Monday afternoon.
Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's deputies responded to the school around 6:30 a.m. Monday after a social media threat was discovered. Deputies checked the school and determined there was no current threat to the campus.
“We opted to err on the side of safety, and I’m pleased to report that after a thorough search Hammond High Magnet is safe and that we will be ready to hold classes there again on Tuesday," School Superintendent Melissa Stilley said.
The school will increase its law enforcement presence in the coming days. Deputies continue to investigate in order to find the person who posted the threat on Instagram on Monday morning.
