Students return to high school after law enforcement determines no credible threat

February 23, 2016

After conducting a thorough investigation, law enforcement officials have determined that there is no credible threat at the high school and students have returned to class.  Classes resumed at our high school shortly before 10 a.m. and students will follow their regular schedules.

Early this morning, we were alerted that a threatening message was found at the high school.  We immediately alerted law enforcement officials and shortly thereafter we made the decision to re-route buses and drivers to the Golding campus.

Law enforcement cleared the campus for re-occupancy shortly after 9:15 a.m., at which time we began to transport students and staff back to the high school campus.

We made the decision to shelter students and staff based on the timing of the incident.  Buses were already on the road and some staff and students had already started arriving at school, so we were not able to close the high school.

Classes resumed at our high school shortly before 10 a.m. and students will follow their regular schedules.

We extend our appreciation to local law enforcement, our faculty and staff, and most importantly, to our students and parents.  We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and professionalism as we took prudent steps to ensure the safety and security of our school community.

The safety and security of our students, staff, and visitors is always our highest concern.  This morning, we demonstrated our commitment to everyone’s safety and security by implementing our shelter plan until we could ensure the safety of our high school campus.

Please don’t hesitate to contact  your child’s principal or our superintendent’s office if you have questions or concerns regarding this incident.
