SOUTHOLD -

Students at Southold's Junior-Senior High School can expect to see police on campus today.

Parents worried Wednesday after threats of violence at the school caused concerns on social media.

The superintendent of Southold schools says an investigation is underway, and that not all of the information posted online was true.
