Dalayna Madison Stanford was booked into Denton County Jail about 2 a.m. Tuesday in lieu of $10,000 bail. She has since been released, jail records show.  

Krum Police Chief Terry Hargis said he could not go into detail about the nature of the threats because police are still investigating the matter. He said Stanford posted the threat on Snapchat over the weekend, and Krum High School administrators notified police Monday night. 

Students didn't have class Monday, Krum ISD officials said.

"I'm willing to tell you that what she said was alarming, and when people started seeing it, they became alarmed," Hargis said. "[The parents] weren't going to bring their kids to school." 

Hargis said he could not specify whether the alleged threat involved a weapon. 

Krum ISD Assistant Superintendent Nancy Shipley said she couldn't confirm whether the student will face additional disciplinary action. 

Superintendent Cody Carroll was out of town Tuesday and could not be reached for comment, according to his administrative assistant, Rhonda Harrison. 

Harrison said Stanford's social media post "could have been perceived as a threat," and school administrators didn't want to take any chances. 

"Given the nature of recent events, the district felt it was better to be proactive in contacting authorities rather than not give it the concern it might have warranted," Harrison said. 

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misnamed the Krum ISD assistant superintendent. Nancy Shipley currently serves in the position.
