A threat found on a bathroom stall at North Putnam High School has prompted the school district to put additional security measures in place.

A message was sent to parents Monday from Dan Noel, superintendent of the North Putnam Community School Corporation.

"Writing that we consider threatening was placed in a bathroom stall at the high school. The date of February 4th was included in the threat. No student or faculty names were listed in the message, and there was no mention of how the threat would be carried out," Noel wrote.

The school district says it's added an officer in the high school and middle school for increased security, and all high school and middle school staff have been alerted to the situation.

Parents are also asked to be vigilant at home by talking to their children. If anyone has relevant information, they're asked to contact the school immediately.
