In light of recent events around the area and the inaccurate information that was released a few weeks ago, I felt it best to be forthcoming with an incident that was reported today. This morning we received a report that some students had felt threatened by another student. Administrative officials investigated these claims and determined that a potentially credible threat did exist. This information was turned over to law enforcement officials and the Morgan County R-II School District is fully cooperating with their investigation. The student in question is not at school.
The Morgan County R-II School District takes threats towards our students very seriously and will not tolerate violent language. We are thankful that students reported their concerns and encourage our families to visit with their children about what are appropriate and inappropriate conversations to have with friends at school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
