Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to inform you of a situation that took place at F. L. Schlagle High School today. The school received a phone call, during which the caller made a threat against the school. The school was evacuated while the threat was assessed; ultimately, it was found to not be a credible threat.

 

While we don’t know whether any individual threat is serious or just a joke, it is important to understand that the school and the district take seriously ANY threat, against another person, building, or anything else. Information about any threats will immediately be shared with law enforcement authorities, and any individual found to be making a threat will face serious consequences.

 

This incident presents an excellent opportunity to have an open discussion with your child about the importance of school safety and school safety policies. It is important that we all take school safety very seriously.

 

This is also a time to discuss responsible internet usage and digital citizenship.  Social media and the internet are available to millions of viewers.  It is always important to think before you post anything, and to know that your posting will be readily available to the world.  We all must think before we post.

 

We will continue to do everything we can to provide a safe and secure learning environment here at F.L. Schlagle High School.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me, or come by the school office.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Yolanda Thompson

Principal
