DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A Decatur City Schools spokesperson told News 19 that Austin Junior High School (AJHS) went on heightened alert following an AirDrop message.
School officials say the message contained some sort of bomb threat but law enforcement do not believe the threat was credible.
AirDrop is a feature used to share photos from iPhone to iPhone.
This incident came after Decatur High and Middle School were dismissed from school earlier on Friday due to “several staff members receiving emails containing threats,” according to school officials.
The school system spokesperson said that students and staff were secure. Classes continued as normal.
School personnel and authorities are investigating.
News 19 will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they come.
