I want to make you aware of an incident that took place before school this morning.
Police and Shasta administrators conducted an investigation into a posting on social media about not coming to school, followed text messaging among Shasta students wondering about a school shooting.
There was no detailed threat to harm Shasta students or staff. Nevertheless, we take any perceived threat seriously, so police questioned the student believed to be responsible for the posting. It was determined there was no credible threat, however we will continue to assume that any threat is believable.
We all understand that middle school-aged children will say and do regrettable things, and hopefully these are learning opportunities. But, I am asking that you have a conversation with your child. Please remind them that words matter, whether they are spoken, written, or posted online. There are consequences for using inappropriate words just as there are for inappropriate actions. This is especially true when it comes to threatening violence.
Shasta students are reminded that if they see something, say something. Our thanks go out to those who notified us of today’s online message. If you learn of any threats to our school community, please call the police and/or Shasta administrators.
The safety and security of our students and staff remain our first priority. We all need to continue working together to help keep our school safe.
If you have any questions please contact me.
