On Friday and Monday, our town and our district were faced with threats that were posted to social media. Due to the fast action of citizens who informed law enforcement and the decisive action of our local police department, the subjects responsible have been arrested. Subjects remain incarcerated at this time. If any make bail, we will be notified. Additional updates will be posted to this site and to our Facebook page as needed.
The action we want to reinforce is “See Something, Say Something.” Here’s a message from the US Dept. of Homeland Security:
Across the nation, we're all part of communities. In cities, on farms, and in the suburbs, we share everyday moments with our neighbors, colleagues, family, and friends. It's easy to take for granted the routine moments in our every day—going to work or school, the grocery store or the gas station. But your every day is different than your neighbor’s—filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn't be there—or someone's behavior that doesn't seem quite right—say something. Because only you know what’s supposed to be in your everyday. Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. "If You See Something, Say Something™" engages the public in protecting our homeland through awareness–building, partnerships, and other outreach.
Thanks for your support of our district and our students!
Dr. Fay Sprouse, Superintendent
