Dothan School Superintendent Sounds off on Northview High Threats

"There have been reports from certain media outlets that weapons were found at Northview High School. An ongoing investigation has determined that no weapons have been found at Northview.

Additional security is on campus and a routine schedule is being followed. Four students at Northview have been arrested for making threatening remarks about Northview on “My Space”.

Local law enforcement is doing a full investigation and appropriate actions will be forthcoming by law enforcement and the School System. I want to reassure parents that the School System will do everything possible to ensure the safety of their children.

We take every threatening comment toward our schools very seriously. The safety of our students is our first priority."
