Abilene Independent School District leaders as well as Wylie School leaders call the threats non-specific and say they have been posted on various social media platforms over the last several weeks.
With the school shooting in Sandy Hook CT being less than a week old, police and local school officials are taking no chances.
At a mid-day news conference, police and school leaders wanted to reassure the public that they have the procedures and people in place to handle a situation in the unlikely possibility that a threat were to occur.
Abilene Police will also have additional officers on all AISD campuses as well as Wylie campuses.
Police ask that parents of teens make time to have some serious conversations about posting things on social media, including what's acceptable, what's not, and what to report to authorities.
Some of the information posted involves the upcoming Mayan calendar date and that being this Friday prompted some on-line comments relating to potential confrontations on Friday.
