Important Message About Incident Today

 

Apex Friendship High School Parents: 

 

Because we want to keep you informed, I would like you to be aware of an incident that we’ve been investigating today. 

 

This morning, we discovered a threat written on the wall of a girls’ restroom directing students to not come to school “next Friday.” 

 

We take all threats to our school seriously. As soon as we were made aware of this message, we contacted the WCPSS Security Department and law enforcement. They are both investigating to help us evaluate the credibility of the threat. While this appears to be a hoax threat, we are continuing to investigate to determine the parties responsible for making it. As with all threats, we will ask law enforcement and the courts to prosecute those responsible for committing this crime. 

 

Please take time to talk to your child about the importance of reporting any threats to a school administrator immediately. Please make them aware that making a hoax threat has serious consequences including criminal prosecution and suspension from school.

 

Know that we will continue to take every measure to ensure the safety of our students. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our front office at 919-694-0500.

 

We appreciate your continued support of a safe learning environment for students.
