TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson middle school will have additional security on campus on Friday, April 28, after receiving a threat.

According to the Tucson Unified School District, the Pima County Sheriff's Department and TUSD School Safety do not believe the threat against Valencia Middle School, 4400 W. Irvington Road, to be credible.

In a letter sent to parents, Valencia Principal Michael Beck said the extra security is being added "out of an abundance of caution."

The full letter is below:

I wanted to make you aware of a threat we received against the school. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department and TUSD School Safety do not believe this threat to be credible, however, out of an abundance of caution we will have additional security on campus tomorrow. Please remind your student that making threats is a serious offence [sic] and disrupts the learning environment. They should also never share a threat but instead report it to you and us. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
