Dacula Middle School Principal Kellye Riggins has asked parents to discuss the seriousness of last week's bomb threat "prank" with their children.
"Unfortunately, the rumors, talk, and media coverage of the threat have spurred some copycat incidents," Riggins advised in an email to parents.
Riggins informed parents the school is committed to ensuring those responsible face "appropriate criminal and disciplinary consequences for the disruptions they are causing."
"Our goal is to minimize these disruptions and continue our efforts to work with you to ensure we offer a safe school community for our students," Riggins wrote. "I know this is a priority we all share. As always, I thank you for your continued support of our school and students!"
