This afternoon, the Holmes County Sheriff's Office received a report of a phone scam, during which the caller made a threat regarding one of our schools (Bonifay Elementary School). We are working with the Sheriff's Office to take extra precautions tomorrow to ensure the safety of our students and staff at Bonifay Elementary School. The Sheriff's Office will be using detection dogs to conduct a security sweep of the building before school begins, and extra deputies will be on hand until school is released tomorrow. The safety of our students is our highest priority!
