DARIEN, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a coastal Georgia county cancelled classes at its public schools as a precaution after someone posted a threat on social media.
            
Diane Richardson, deputy school superintendent for McIntosh County, says no one was injured. She says parents were allowed to pick up their children early Thursday, but schools remained open so students who ride the bus wouldn't be home alone while their parents were at work.
            
WSAV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/13juNdJ) Sheriff Steve Jessup told reporters the scare was prompted by a threat including a photo of a gun and a written statement that was circulated on social media.
            
Authorities announced no arrests connected to the threat. School officials say classes will resume Friday.
