After investigating these claims, Brevard County school and law enforcement officials determined Friday is expected to be a normal school day.

“We are asking you to speak with your children about the serious nature of making a school threat. They are NEVER a “joke” and they will not be treated lightly under any circumstances,” said a school district representative in a statement. “Please help your children understand that some of these consequences carry lifelong repercussions.”

Flagler County Sheriff’s Office also addressed the nationwide threats that came up as a result of a TikTok trend, saying there were no local credible threats.
