The Ponca City Public School district has been made aware of a threatening post on a public Facebook page concerning the Ponca City High School.

“As soon as we became aware of this situation, we contacted the Ponca City Police Department." Superintendent Dr. David Pennington said. "We are working with the Police Department to closely monitor the situation.”

The post mentioned taking violent action at the high school and taking hostages. The post was seen on at least three different Facebook pages and has since been removed.
