A Conway High School student is facing charges after "a threat and derogatory statement" about a teacher was found on a bathroom wall, according to the Conway Police Department.
School officials and authorities investigated the incident and identified a 16-year-old student involved. The student has been removed from the school, will be disciplined by Conway High and is facing charges of Disturbing Schools and Malicious Damage to Property in connection with the incident, according to Selena Small with the Conway Police Department.
“The safety of the students and staff is the top priority of Conway Police and Conway High School,” Small said via email. “Conway Police Department and Horry County Schools are committed to working together and will not tolerate threats. We encourage everyone to talk with students and remind them that threats, even if meant as a joke, will result in those responsible being held accountable.”
An email sent to parents obtained by WPDE states the student has been removed from the school and that the threat was to harm the school Monday.
