FORSAN, Texas — Thursday evening, a Forsan High School student is accused of making threats against their peers.

Forsan Independent School District administrators say they were told the student made a series of verbal threats to the safety of students.

They also mentioned statements encouraging other students to wear blue to school on Friday in order to be safe.
