Update: Spokane Public Schools said in a voicemail sent to parents Tuesday night that law enforcement is investigating following an increase in the number of social media threats against Lewis and Clark High School.

The voicemail said there will be an increased number of school resource officers and Spokane Police officers on campus Wednesday.

This is an update to the message sent out this morning to Lewis and Clark staff, students and families regarding threats made to students at Lewis and Clark via social media.
