(GOUPSTATE) — Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputies are investigating threats made against Jewish and Muslim students at Byrnes High School.
Additional law enforcement officers will patrol Byrnes High School over the next several days after the threats, which contained vulgar and violent language, were reported to deputies.
"We are taking it very seriously," said Spartanburg School District 5 Superintendent Scott Turner. "I was very alarmed when I saw the posts and how vile some of the language was, and how direct the threats were, not only against our students but the families of our students."
