ORANGE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Orange County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with Orange County High School, is investigating a potential social media threat.

The sheriff's office said it received information about the threat just before OCHS opened Tuesday morning. 

The sheriff's office determined that the post on social media involved a threat to a teacher and was not directed toward Orange County Public Schools. It also did not originate from an Orange County student.

Officials say the threat was made in another jurisdiction. According to the sheriff's office, that jurisdiction had previously conducted an investigation and the matter was addressed.

According to a Facebook post made by the sheriff's office, all students and staff are safe. Officials are currently working to get all OCHS students home from school.

This is an ongoing investigation. The sheriff's office says it will notify the community when it has more information regarding this threat.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office asks anyone who sees or observes a potential threat either on social media or by other means to call (540) 672-1234.
