School officials say they are increasing security today at Woodlawn Elementary, Middle, and High schools due to an electronic threat.

The District sent a letter to parents yesterday informing them a threat had been made electronically which referenced Woodlawn Middle School.

According to reports, the threat was made in a video and appeared to be a copycat from a similar threat made earlier in the year.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Department is currently investigating the threat and where it originated.
