A heightened police presence will be at schools in La Cygne, KS, on Friday after a suspicious note was found in a high school bathroom on Thursday.

School officials say the note contained a threat towards Prairie View High School about classes on Friday.

The increased police presence, 10-12 officers, will be seen at the district's high school and middle school. Officers will monitor both the buildings and parking lots and will watch surveillance tapes, looking for the person responsible for the message.
