Letter from school...I'm worried! Long but please read!!
I am writing to share important information about an event that impacted our community this weekend.
On Saturday morning, administration was alerted by some students and parents that threats against students and the school were being made via a social media site. Throughout Saturday, we gathered more information from students and parents and worked with the police as they investigated. For the safety of our community, we shut down access to our buildings.
On Sunday, all four school buildings were searched by police accompanied by explosive-detecting dogs. No weapons or evidence of devices were found and law enforcement officials determined that our buildings are safe. At the conclusion of the search, the buildings were secured and access will not be permitted until the start of school on Monday.
The Police Department, in conjunction with other local law enforcement agencies, has worked tirelessly throughout this weekend and is continuing to conduct an on-going criminal investigation. I’m sure that you have many questions about the information that I’m sharing. As this situation is an on-going police investigation as well as a school disciplinary investigation, I am unable to provide additional details about the situation at this time.
I recognize that learning this information will be concerning to many of you and to our students. We are confident in the work done by the law enforcement agencies to ensure that our students and school buildings are safe. In addition, there will be an increased police presence on campus as students and faculty return to campus on Monday. Our students have access to their guidance counselors to help reassure them regarding this matter.
This kind of has me freaking out and not really wanting to send ds to school tomorrow. Am I just overreacting?! How would you feel, what would you do?!
