GRAND BLANC, Mich. (WNEM) - Students at a local high school were sent home on Monday after threats on social media.

“I think that it was kind of a stupid prank. And I feel like someone just pranked us and they thought that it was funny and spreading it around,” said Madison Graff, student.

School officials at Grand Blanc High School said it was out of an abundance of caution after the school was in secure mode with an increased police presence.

“I’m kind of glad that they took precaution because last year we had another threat and they didn’t really do anything. So, it’s nice that they actually did something about it this time,” Graff said.

Officials said the threat came from someone that is not in the student database. Police are still investigating to find the source and ensure student safety.

The school plans to resume classes as normal on Wednesday.

Graff said she is looking forward to being back in school.

“I love being with friends, and we had some projects to finish and do, and some presentations. So that kind of got set back, that I was ready for,” Graff said.

Graff is hoping this is the last time threats disrupt the school year.

“They’re really stupid because some people really do take that seriously. It’s not something to joke about at all,” Graff said.
