A possible threat to a local charter school is under investigation. Administrators at G-Star School of the Arts in Palm Springs sent out an e-mail to parents which reads in part:
“G-Star has been notified of a threat to possibly our school or to another school. There is no way to determine which school the threat was directed to. G-Star takes all threats seriously and we are giving it our full administrative attention for investigation. Although this threat may be a prank and not even aimed at our school, our student’s and employee’s safety is our number one priority. We will continue to investigate the threat.”
Somebody reportedly found a general threat written in a boy's bathroom at the school on Wednesday afternoon, once students were already off campus for the day. The threat didn't mention G-Star or any other school by name.
Parents have been given the option to pull their kids out of the school through Friday, as an excused absence. Extra police presence is on campus. Charter schools receive public funding but are not run by the Palm Beach County School District, so Palm Springs Police are handling the investigation.
