New Mexico Threat Against Clovis High School not Caroline High School

This evening Caroline County Public Schools and Caroline County Sheriff’s Office were made aware of a threatening Instagram post referencing “CHS.” CCSO worked quickly to investigate the matter and found that the threat originated in Clovis, New Mexico and targeted Clovis High School. An arrest was made by local authorities in that jurisdiction. The Sheriff’s Office confirmed with Instagram that the post being viewed by Caroline County residents, was in fact the post that originated in Clovis, New Mexico and has no connection to Caroline High School.

Here is local media coverage from Clovis, New Mexico.

Caroline County Public Schools is grateful to parents, staff, and community members who reported this concern to school administration, Silence Hurts, and the Sheriff’s Office. This “see something, say something” approach enabled law enforcement and schools to investigate and communicate with our stakeholders in a timely manner.

Thank you!
