Osceola County deputies are expected to be at Poinciana High School Monday after a former student threatened to shoot people at the school.
The student, who was recently expelled, made the threat on the Internet, saying the shooting would happen Monday.
The former student has already been arrested in Texas, where he now lives, and taken to a juvenile detention center.
But authorities said they will still be on campus Monday to ensure the safety of students, parents and teachers.
Officials said the 15-year-old was expelled after releasing mice in the cafeteria.
Then, on Friday, the student posted a message online, saying he had high-powered guns in a school locker, and was going to shoot certain students on Monday.
He told detectives it was a prank, that he didnt own any guns, and was not going to hurt anyone.
Still, authorities arrested the teen and charged him with a second-degree felony.
