Two Southeast Bulloch Middle School (SEBMS) students were taken into custody Tuesday evening, January 11, 2022, in connection with an alleged verbal threat made against the school.  

SEBMS will continue to operate as scheduled on Wednesday with heightened supervision.

The alleged verbal threat was made after school during afternoon bus routes. It was reported to school administrators, who worked closely with the school resource officer and the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office to swiftly identify those involved.

Southeast Bulloch Middle School’s administrators notified the parents of their students about the incident earlier this evening using the district’s electronic messaging system.

Bulloch County Schools encourages all students to report threats or suspicious activity in a timely manner, just as was the case in this instance.  

Bulloch County Schools and its faculty and staff appreciate the continued swift and constant support of local law enforcement.
