WEATHERFORD (CBSDFW.COM) - A student at Weatherford High School was pulled from class on Friday after allegedly posting threatening words on his or her personal Facebook page. The comment in question was made public, visible to district employees, parents and other classmates on the social networking website.

Officials with the Weatherford Independent School District were notified about the posting on Thursday, and they contacted the Weatherford Police Department. “I want to commend Weatherford Police Chief Mike Manning and his officers for responding so quickly to this incident,” Weatherford ISD Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Hanks said Friday in a statement.

The student’s Facebook page was taken down on Thursday evening and the student was removed from class on Friday. Schools and athletic facilities in the district increased security on Friday morning and staff members were informed about the situation.

“Safety is our top priority at Weatherford ISD,” the school district said on their Facebook and Twitter sites, “and we simply cannot afford to take any chances when we become aware that someone has posted alarming information to our students, parents, partners, and community members.”
