Police said the students will be charged with making a terroristic hoax, which is a felony under Oklahoma state law.

The Cobb County School District does not support or endorse walkouts/protests that cause interruption to normal school operations.

"One of the deputies said, 'Your body can't prepare for something your mind has never thought of, '" Hobbs said.

He said the decision was made by senior school district leadership and that the issue of school safety was a paramount factor. "Absolutely not, and last week was a big learning curve", Jaeger said.

"It's not that we're saying we need to take away guns".

The school's gym was packed with parents and students eager to hear about the school's safety plan and to express their concerns. Bill Meyer said Wednesday a student told his son he would bring a gun to school and he had a hit list and his son was on it. School authorities responded immediately per protocol and the proper authorities were notified.

We'll let the courts determine the validity of the charges in all of these cases, but news of these arrests sends the right message: that making these threats are a lot more serious than these malicious pranks. Andress said students and staff will have to show their ID card. We will handle all situations according to protocol and make sure that no ones' safety is at risk. I appreciate the shared responsibility that we all have in keeping our students and staff safe.

The school asks that parents take some time to discuss with your children the seriousness of posting any type of threat or anything that could be perceived as a threat on social media.

In the wake of the recent mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, students are demanding change.

The student is slated to be arraigned in Lowell Juvenile Court.
