A Facebook post threatening Springfield High School in OR prompted investigations in Salem Wednesday night due to a vague threat against SHS.

The same name associated with the post has been identified in these other cases and the post simply references "SHS", not a specifically named school.

Threats made through a series of Facebook posts have garnered concerns in two different school districts in Middle Tennessee.

The message goes on to say, school officials alerted the West Fargo Police department - who determined the post was not directed at Sheyenne.

Authorities say to expect an increased police presence at the school on Friday but classes will resume as usual.

"The police department takes these threats seriously and will take steps to investigate these claims as they are reported", Wasson said.

In the past few days, seven students have been arrested for making threats to schools in Austin, Columbus, Bloomington, Paoli, Vincennes and Evansville.

The Salem School board and superintendent were aware of this earlier this evening and have been notified by police.

Despite their assurances, the district noted they would bring additional law enforcement to the campus on Thursday "out of an abundance of caution".
