Police officers will be on a Copperas Cove ISD campus tomorrow after a threat made to the school Tuesday afternoon. 

In an email sent to several parents, the district said that the phone call was received at SC Lee Junior High School making a possible threat to campus. The email said that the district was working with Copperas Cove police to try to trace where the threat originated from but officials deemed that the threat was not credible. 

Officers with Copperas Cove police are expected to be in place at the school tomorrow as a precaution. 

Copperas Cove Director of Communications Wendy Sledd provided the following statement: 

"CCISD wants to remind parents that student safety is our top priority. In light of the recent events, the staff at S.C. Lee Junior High School is taking every precaution to protect students while at school. The campus is partnering with the Copperas Cove Police Department to ensure a safe and orderly environment for students."
