(Highland-AP) -- Threatening graffiti prompts school officials at a Highland middle school to step up security.

Mountain Ridge Junior High School officials sent a letter home to parents last week saying threatening graffiti was found at the school. Students say the threat was graffiti about bringing a gun to school, but school officials did not specify what the threat was.

However, police are taking the threat seriously. They're patrolling the hallways, and school officials are requiring students to enter only through the front door of the school. School officials are also requiring students to leave their backpacks in their lockers.

The safety precautions will remain in effect throughout the week.
