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.
