The North Carolina Beat is learning that White Oak High School in Jacksonville, North Carolina is canceling in-person classes for Friday, September 2, 2022, due to a threat.
White Oak High School Principal Joycelyn Cassidy emailed parents Thursday afternoon that the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office informed them that the school was a potential target on Friday due to the deadly stabbing at Northside High School Thursday morning.
Out of an abundance of caution, and on the advice of the Sheriff’s Office, White Oak High School will have a remote learning day on Friday, September 2, 2022. Students will not report to campus but will attend classes virtually, Cassidy said in the email to parents.
