Extra security is in place at a Port Huron high school after school officials discovered a hit list targeting black students.
The list of seven to nine students was found written on a bathroom wall at Port Huron Northern High School in Fort Gratiot Township a week ago, Port Huron Schools Superintendent H. Ronald Wollen said this morning.
The note said something would happen today, Wollen said.
“They didn’t really get specific,” Wollen said. “That’s why we’re going to have the police patrolling.”
District parents received a letter at home on Monday from Port Huron Northern Principal Chip Mossett alerting them to the threat.
“Even though it is difficult to accurately assess the credibility of the threat, the Port Huron Area School District and the Port Huron Police Department take this type of threat very seriously,” the letter said, according to the Port Huron Times Herald. (Read more)
