Threat causes school attendance to drop

A threat from a student made administrators need more security officers at school. The 15 year old male, was arrested Wednesday at around 11 p.m according to Bailey Byers, whose dad’s the police officer on the case. The teen posted on the app Yik Yak stating “Bringing a 9mm to DHS” and “white boys are going first” among other things.

Thursday, about half of the students were absent and 123 were at school activities. In some classes the low attendance called for tests and assignments to be delayed.
