Police presence up, no problems Friday at Abilene schools

ABILENE, Texas - Abilene Police ramped up their presence at each AISD and Wylie campus Friday morning.

This comes after an alleged threat made last Friday. 

Many parents continued to drop off their children at Abilene High despite the threat.

"If you're going to be worried about sending your kids (to school), you might as well worry about letting your kids go out to eat and go to the movies," parent Lisa Massey said.

Students also said they were not alarmed either.

"It's going to be a normal day," Abilene High student Jason McMurray said.

"It will be the safest out of any day, I think, because of all the cops," another student said.

Authorities spent the day at both Abilene High and Wylie campuses to ensure every students safety.

Kayla Mosley an AISD student said the alleged threat made last Friday that left a boy in juvenile detention wasn't a big deal.

"It was just a rumor," Mosley said. "It was just some stupid person that posted it on Facebook."

Abilene and Wylie schools had early release on Friday.

Classes start backup for both schools on Jan. 7th.
