COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Officials at Richland Northeast High School have determined rumors about something happening at the high school today were untrue.

Richland Two spokesperson Libby Roof said school administrators received word Thursday about the potential for an incident to close the week.

Officers investigated the claim, but found nothing to substantiate it.

However, school officials decided to bring in extra officers to the school as a precaution.

An alert went out to parents Friday about the rumor.
