FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - The head of the Fort Worth ISD is sending a letter to all parents in the district after a social media threat this morning that targeted one of the district's schools. Dr. Kent Scribner is asking parents to help stop on-line threats targeting campuses and students.

"I cannot emphasize strongly enough that such acts are a CRIME," Dr. Scribner wrote. "We will prosecute anyone who perpetrates such criminal activity."

This morning's threat on social media targeted Eastern Hills High School. About half of the students at the school stayed home today. So far, police have not arrested any suspects in the case.

"We suggest that parents talk to their students about the responsible use of social media," said Clint Bond, Executive Director of External Communications. "We are asking parents for their help to remove this scourge...these threats that come in to schools on a regular basis."
