PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh police are investigating a domestic dispute involving a family with children who attend both Pittsburgh Banksville K-5 and Pittsburgh South Hills 6-8 grade schools.
A letter sent home said, “At no time was a direct threat made toward our school; however, we have heightened security measures at the school to ensure student safety."
Heightened security means school staff members are on alert and watching for suspicious behavior. Also, school police take customary steps to provide additional support.
“I don’t think you can ever go wrong with heightened alert especially with what’s happened in these schools today,” said a parent.
As for the domestic dispute, Channel 11 was told the person making threats is out of the country. A warrant has been issued for his arrest if he should return, police said.
