The first threat was reported on Monday through a suspicious activity reporting app. The Manatee County Sheriff's Office had been monitoring the threat, and as a precaution, authorities put additional security on campus.
"As always, please stress to your students that participating in any type of threat against a school, even in jest, can lead to life-altering legal and school district consequences," school officials said in a Facebook post.
