Albemarle Police Department received a phone call Thursday night about a possible threat at a school named “Albemarle High.”

In a Facebook post, APD said Albemarle High’s school resource officer received a call from “a federal agency that monitors threats on social media stating some type of threat was made on social media” against a school named “Albemarle High.”

As a precaution, the agency contacted Albemarle County in Virginia and the City of Albemarle since both have high schools named “Albemarle High.”

APD said precautions were taken to “ensure the safety of our children is a top priority.”

On Friday, APD gave an update that the threat was intended for the school in Virginia and that an arrest has been made.
