Powell Middle School
In an abundance of caution, extra Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies have been placed on the campus of Powell Middle School today. At some point over the weekend, an educator at Powell Middle School, who is a Pasco County resident, received a threat via telephone. The educator immediately notified the Pasco Sheriff’s Office, as they have jurisdiction where the call was received. The educator also notified the Powell Middle School Principal and School Safety and Security. At that time arrangements were made to have Hernando County deputies on site this morning. The Pasco Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation into the threatening telephone call. The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is working closely with the Pasco Sheriff’s Office in the investigation.
