The following is the message sent to parents of Tullahoma High School students early Tuesday morning from THS Principal Kathy Rose. It appears below in its entirety.


“At approximately 1 a.m. this morning, THS administration was notified by school resource officer, Willie Young, that a THS student had made a specific threat which involved bringing a firearm to school. The threat had been made via Instagram. Officer Young informed administration that an arrest had been made. However, the student was subsequently released to their parents by law enforcement. The family has been instructed to keep the student at home until a thorough investigation can be conducted. As always, thank you for trusting us not only with your children’s education but their safety as well.”
