Amity High School Principal Charles Britton issued the following statement to the Amity community via the school's announcement system this afternoon.
Good Afternoon Amity,
An incident occurred today at Amity Regional High School. This email is being distributed to inform the community about the incident.
Earlier this week, a student at Amity Regional High School began a Facebook page called “Amity Senior Prank.” On this Facebook page, a student posted that he was planning a “fake shooting” at the school. This morning, several students reported the post to the administration, and indicated that they were concerned that the prank was actually going to occur at Amity High School. The administration began a prompt investigation and identified the student who made the threat. Law enforcement was notified, and the student has been disciplined. At this time, we have no reason to believe that any students are planning a “fake shooting” at the high school.
