• Family FYI...

     

     

    Bulldog Families,

    Happy Friday! The purpose of this letter is to inform you that we are aware of the current social media trends across our country regarding threats against schools. 

     

    A few of you have reached out to me about social media threats that some schools have received as well as what is being shared on the local news.  I’m grateful that our students have not participated in spreading these rumors. To my knowledge, no student at our school has shared these social media posts or taken part in the spreading of false rumors. 

     

    Please know that we take school threats of any kind very seriously. WCPSS Security and law enforcement agencies investigate all threats and evaluate their validity. We also work with law enforcement and the courts to prosecute anyone, adult or student, responsible for making a threat or perpetrating a hoax to the fullest extent possible under the law.

     

    We will always communicate to staff and families if a credible threat were to occur and inform families of our plans (as soon as we would be able to investigate and ensure it's legit and then get proper communications out). We would work with our security administrator as well as WCPSS/Raleigh PD.  Your child’s safety is always a top priority and we will always keep you updated of any concerns.

     

    We ask for your support in the following ways:

    • If you or your child sees a threat of violence posted on social media pertaining to our school or others in WCPSS, report it immediately to our school administration or local law enforcement. 

    • Remind your child not to share or forward until law enforcement has had a chance to investigate. Sharing threats spreads misinformation and causes panic, and could result in consequences for your child. 

     

    We intend to have a productive day of teaching and learning today. Thank you for your continued support of our school.
