Following Friday's Threat, Superintendent Increases School Security

Security measures at Magoffin County High School will be stricter Monday following Friday's threats.

Magoffin County Schools Superintendent Joe Hunley says the school will not be on lockdown, but students and visitors can expect "beefed up" security measures. He says there will be extra law enforcement officers at the school and all bags and large coats will be checked.

Hunley says security at other schools in the district will be more closely monitored as well.

This comes after the Magoffin County Sheriff learned a student at the high school was allegedly planning a school shooting attack.
