Texas City High School will have heightened security in place today after an unspecified threat was made Thursday, the district announced.

A person made the threat on the social media app Snapchat and said "TCHS will be greased at 1 pm tomorrow," according to a district spokeswoman.

"This afternoon, a threat was made to TCHS for tomorrow," the district said. "It was fully investigated and determined that a non-student made it. We take all threats seriously. Law enforcement is handling the situation. For extra precautions, we will have additional security in place tomorrow."
