Two Galveston County school districts responded Friday to rumors of threats against campuses.
In a Facebook post Friday morning, the League City Police Department said it was made aware of a threat against students and faculty at Clear Creek High School on Thursday evening.
The Galveston County Sheriff's Office, which handles security at the school, was contacted. The two departments provided extra patrols at the school, although the threat was believed to be a hoax.
At Galveston Independent School District, school officials were alerted to a social media rumor about someone causing a "severe disruption" at Ball High School on Feb. 27. The school investigated that threat, and determined it was a "false rumor," according to a message sent to parents.
No arrests related to the hoaxes were immediately reported.
In the days following the fatal shooting of 17 people at a South Florida high school, schools across the country have reported receiving hoax threats. None of the threats have proven credible.
