School threats trigger rash of absenteeism

A second Gwinnett County, Georgia high school reported high absenteeism Friday after apparently receiving a text threat.

The Gwinnett Daily Post reports about a third of the students at Collins Hill High School stayed home Friday. The Post didn't disclose the nature of the threat.

On Thursday, school officials said about ten percent of the students at Brookwood High were absent following a series of email threats to teachers and staff at that school. Citing a source, WSB Radio reported those messages threatened to "shoot up a school."
