Police contacted the accused person and advised them to stay away from the schools.

However, some parents said they are still worried about their children's safety.

"That makes me feel very uncomfortable, and I’m not easy about this,” said parent Amanda Guthrie. “This isn't very okay with us."

District officials said they have increased security presence at both schools.

They also said they have implemented a Crisis Management Plan until the investigation is finished.
