The Taylorville Police Department and Taylorville School District worked through the night after a gun threat was made to Taylorville High School through social media Thursday night. An automatic call went out to Taylorville School District parents at 6:15 Friday morning. Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau said in the message that class will be in session on Friday, and the district continues to work with Taylorville Police to investigate the threat.
The Taylorville School District has reported through their Facebook page that the threat has been deemed not credible.
We will have more information as it becomes available.
