CHICAGO (WLS) -- School security will be stepped up Monday morning after a threat to Whitney Young Magnet High School on Chicago's Near West Side.
A student informed school officials about a threatening message written on the stall in the girls' bathroom. The message stated "You will pay 12/5."
School officials reached out to Chicago police and emailed parents.
CPS issued a statement Sunday night saying, in part, "student safety is the district's top priority and all potential threats are taken very seriously."
