Extra security will be on campus Monday as precaution

MARION COUNTY, Fla. – A threat made by a student on social media to Forest High School is not credible, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Marion County Public Schools sent an audio message to parents saying a student reported a threat made by another student against the high school on social media and that then deputies confronted the student who made the post.
