The principal of Kennett High School says the school has determined the threat level to the safety of students and staff members is low after comments posted on the Internet by a student over the weekend.

The provocative and threatening comments were reported Wednesday by the Conway Daily Sun.

In a memo sent to parents, Neal Moylan says concerned community members and students made the school aware of the situation Monday and an immediate and thorough investigation was conducted.

The school determined the threat level was low after interviews with various parties involved and local agencies.

The principal says counselors are available for any students who are concerned and want to speak with someone – and parents are encouraged to contact the school with any concerns they might have.

Moylan says it’s also an opportunity for parents to talk with their children about the responsible use of social media.
