HUNTINGTON – Huntington High School will operate on a regular schedule Friday after an arrest was made Friday morning due to an undisclosed threat being made.

According to Cabell County Schools spokesperson Jedd Flowers in a message sent at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, a threat had been made to “the school’s safety” by one individual.

A follow-up message from Flowers received at about 5:30 a.m. Friday said the individual had been located and arrested by Huntington Police. In his original message, Flowers said if the person had not been arrested as of Friday morning, the school would most likely be closed because the threat had been isolated to one individual suspect.

With the arrest, Flowers said the school will operate on a regular schedule Friday.
