MANSFIELD (1080 KRLD) - Officials with the Mansfield ISD have sent a letter to parents to try to clear up confusion about a recent threat.

Mansfield ISD police arrested a student at Worley Middle School for making a threat online. That student has been charged with a felony count of making a terroristic threat.

But as pictures spread online, some parents at Mansfield High School thought a threat had been made there.

The Associate Principal at Mansfield High sent a letter to parents saying the post had no connection to the high school, and there's no danger to students.

Police say their investigation has shown the threat at the middle school was not credible.
