Pender deputies check rumor of disruption at Topsail High School


PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Pender County Sheriff’s deputies are at Topsail High School after the staff heard rumors of what a school district spokeswoman called “a disruption” during the school day.

Pender County Schools spokeswoman Joyce Keith tells WWAY the rumor was that “a disruption” would happen during the lunchtime Power House, when students have lunch, tutoring and other activities, like club meetings. As a result, school administrators canceled the Power Hour and asked the Sheriff’s Office to investigate.
