Springfield High School will plan additional security for prom this weekend, but has had no specific safety threats about the event.
"We are just being proactive," said Kim Fish, district spokeswoman.
The high school has had an increased police presence all week following the shooting death of 17-year-old student Jeff Wellington on Sunday and is cooperating with investigators.
"We continue to track any rumors," Fish said.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Tyrin Hawkins, 17, of Springfield, on a murder charge in connection with Wellington's death. Police said they haven't seen threats from Hawkins toward the high school. The suspect hasn't posted on his Facebook page since April 19, police said.
