CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Enhanced police presence is expected as a precaution Friday at Oak Hills High School due to a social media threat, school officials said.

Law enforcement officials are investigating the threat, and they believe it is false, Principal Travis Hunt said in phone messages to parents Thursday night.

"This evening we were made aware of a threat to our high school via social media," his message reads.

"We immediately contacted our local law enforcement officials and they are investigating the incident. We believe this to be a false threat, but the district takes all threats to the safety of our students and staff seriously.

"As a precaution, we will have additional police presence at school throughout the day tomorrow, December 15. We would like to thank the Green Township Police Department for their prompt response, cooperation and investigation into this matter."
