THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The Thomas County School Messenger says that the system beefed up school security today, after a social media threat, that it deemed 'vague and not credible.'

The system issued this statement Monday:

The Thomas County School System became aware early this morning of a very vague threat to an individual student at one of our schools. The student is safe, and the threat is not deemed to be credible. Contrary to social media rumors, no weapons have been found on any of our school campuses nor have there been any incidents of violence on our campuses.  We have determined that it is safe for our schools to continue with a normal day. Out of an abundance of caution, in cooperation with the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office, we have increased security at our schools.
