Update: October 6, 2017 Incident at High School

posted Oct 10, 2017, 5:45 PM by Web Coordinator

This is Jeff Berger, superintendent of the South Tama County schools.  With regard to recent threats at the high school, all reported rumors and suspicious activities were investigated by school administration and police.  We were without incident today.  Police were present all day and the school board was aware of the situation.  Teachers and administrators were implementing our emergency plan as written.  If your student stayed home, parents or guardians will need to call to excuse that absence.  We understand these situations are stressful.  Social media posts can be misleading, but can also be a good source of information, so please ensure the school and police are aware of information as it occurs.  There will be continued police presence.  We will continue to be vigilant and will inform you of any change in the situation.

Este es Jeff Berger, superintendente de las escuelas del Condado de South Tama. Con respecto a las recientes amenazas en la escuela secundaria, todos los rumores y actividades sospechosas fueron investigados por la administración escolar y la policía. Hoy no tuvimos ningún incidente. La policía estuvo presente todo el día y el consejo escolar fue consciente de la situación. Los maestros y administradores estaban implementando nuestro plan de emergencia tal como estaba escrito. Si su estudiante se quedó en casa, los padres o tutores necesitarán llamar para excusar esa ausencia. Entendemos que estas situaciones son estresantes. Puestos de los medios de comunicación social puede ser engañosa, pero también puede ser una buena fuente de información, así que por favor asegúrese de que la escuela y la policía son conscientes de la información que se produce. Habrá una presencia policial continua. Seguiremos vigilando y le informaremos de cualquier cambio en la situación.

October 6, 2017 Incident at the High School

posted Oct 9, 2017, 7:51 AM by Web Coordinator

We have received calls and questions about the incident that occurred at the High School Friday.  A 9th grader at the High School did make serious verbal threats Friday.  The threats were not directed to any individuals. There was no written hit list.  Our students did a great job of letting our administrators know about the situation quickly.  We had the Tama Police help us determine the credibility of the threat and it was determined that, at that time, the threat was not credible.  The student was detained by Police and appropriate school discipline was administered. While we addressed the issue quickly and effectively, it is clear that we need to keep lines of communication open.  As a result, we will review our emergency procedures so that in the future, you have the confidence that we are keeping you informed.   We want all students to feel safe in our schools.  We will continue to monitor this situation and, if we believe additional threats exist, we will communicate that with you directly and quickly.  Thank you and please contact Jeff Berger directly if you have additional concerns or questions.
