APSO sheriff ensures safety following threat against high schools
DUTCHTOWN - Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley said he is investigating threats made by a Dutchtown High School student "regarding some action the school took against her earlier," Thursday.
In a Facebook post Thursday evening, said the threats concerned students and parents at Dutchtown High School and St. Amant High School.
"The Ascension Parish Schools officials handled it quickly, efficiently and aggressively and identified the student who posted it and took administrative action," Wiley wrote.

APSO deputies are still investigating the threat.
Wiley went on to ensure parents and students that the threat "has been dealt with," and was never considered credible. He added there was no reason students, faculty, or parents should be concerned about the safety on campus or at extra curricular activities.
Wiley did not go into specifics of the threat or identify the student involved.
