Police presence at Bluefield schools as a 'precaution'


There is a police presence at several area schools after a potential threat was made at Bluefield High School.

Police cruisers were there as a precaution after a potentially threatening note was found on Thursday inside a girl's restroom at the high school. The school along with the West Virginia State Police are investigating the incident.

The note has since been dismissed as a threat.

"Our safety is our number one concern," said Bluefield High School Principal Mike Collins. "So, again today we just want to involve the police. We sent out a letter to parents last night [Thursday]. Again. today is a normal day at Bluefield High."
