AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - Parents of TW Josey High School students gathered outside the school Tuesday after officials say a violent threat was made against the school.

Here is the message from school officials:

We are aware and investigating a potential threat made against our school.  Out of an abundance of caution and with the safety of our students and staff in mind, additional security personnel are on our school campus to support student movement through the building and  dismissal. The potential threat is being investigated by Richmond County School Safety and Security officers and is believed to have been made in response to a fight that occurred in the community. We take all threats seriously and work to resolve them quickly.

Please take this opportunity to remind your child about the Richmond County School System Tip Line, 706-828-1077, which is always available to receive and address their concerns about safety of our school, students and staff.
