On December 18, 2016, Barberton High School received a threat on an app called “After School”. Security was briefly amped up, with police officers at every entrance. Many parents were outraged that school wasn’t cancelled due to the threat. Social media was ablaze with fear on that day. I was not afraid and made the decision to attend school to see what was going to happen. Attendance was at an all time low.. My largest classes were mostly empty and I left after 5th period. This incident exposes the power that social media has on our lives. The students who made the threat were disciplined by BHS administration. I made a video documenting my day.
