Northside parents received an email around 4:30 p.m. Monday that stated officials are responding to a threat of a shooting.

Here is the email:


"This is James Wilson, principal of Northside High School, calling to inform you about a social media post that suggests a threat and to be sure you have accurate information. Students and staff are safe and we want you to know that school security is onsite daily. However, we have been made aware of a social media post that states someone wrote on a department store wall that a shooting will happen at Northside on March 26. We take all reports seriously and immediate action has been taken in reporting the social media post to school district administrators, MCSD security and the CPD. Again, our students and staff are safe and the report is being investigated. If you have questions, please call (706) 748-2920. "
