Bomb threat via social media at Fluvanna County High School

The Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office assisted the local high school’s dismissal after it received a bomb threat.

On Sept. 27, Fluvanna County High School was made aware of a post on social media containing the threat, according to a statement released by the sheriff’s office.

The school’s administration alerted the sheriff’s office, and began dismissing students.

Authorities and the school’s administration were unaware of the time the original post was made, but it came to their attention around the end of the school day, according to Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Aaron Hurd.

The post was not “specified” to the school or staff. It was first observed by a student who brought it to administration.

“It looked like it was more related to individuals that were having an inappropriate conversation,” Hurd told The Daily Progress.

Investigators conducted interviews with families and followed leads on the night of the incident, according to Hurd.

“The school was searched yesterday so we could reasonably turn it back over to the school with some confidence that the building was fit to continue being used,” Hurd said.

No arrests have been made, and there are currently no named suspects, according to Hurd.
