Giles County Sheriff to Hold Press Conference on Schools Closing Wednesday

Posted:

Giles County, VA - The Giles County Sheriffs Office will have a press conference Tuesday, January 1 at 4:00 PM in regards to the decision to close the public schools on Wednesday, January 2.

Superintendent Dr. Terry Arbogast posted a notice on the system's website about the decision to close after a threat to the schools. It reads, in part:

On the evening of Dec. 27th, 2012, the Giles County Sheriff's Department, the Town of Narrows police department, and the Giles County Schools, were notified by the Va. State police regarding information on a web-site. This web-site discussed the shootings that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. Included in this discussion on the web-site was how "Sandy Hook" was referenced in the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rising." This reference was in a map that appeared in a scene in this movie. Another zone on this map appearing in the movie was "Narrows." The author, who posted this article, did an online Google search based "on a hunch" for"Narrows Schools." From this search, information for Narrows Elementary/Middle School and Narrows High School appeared.
