Unspecified threat postpones BHS homecoming dance

Posted

Brighton High School postponed its homecoming dance Oct. 2 because of what an Instagram post termed "an unspecified threat."

The post said the threat came to light at midafternoon.  The threat was directed at the safety and security of school students.

"We are working with Brighton Police Department on this situation," the Instagram post read. "In an abundance of caution, we will be postponing the homecoming dance."

As of 3 p.m., the school wasn't able to confirm or deny the credibility of the threat.

The post said student safety "always takes priority in our decisions."

"This threat will temporarily delay our homecoming plans, but it will not stop our students from a homecoming dance that they deserve," the post read. "We will be rescheduling the dance, so everyone who has purchased tickets will still be able to attend the future event."

No date has been announced. Those with information should contact safe2tell.org.
