Bomb threat discovered at Clarkston High School | News
A bomb threat was discovered Tuesday at the end of the school day on a wall outside the girl's bathroom in Clarkston High School's auxiliary gym.
A student found the threatening message and reported it to school officials. A letter was sent home with students today that stated that the messaged indicated an intended bomb threat to occur on Monday. Despite this, school will continue as regularly scheduled on Monday.
"We made sure there was no imminent threat to students," Superintendent Darcy Weisner says. According to the letter sent home with parents today, School Resource Officer Jeremy Foss and the Clarkston Police Department were immediately notified.
"The high school is cooperating with the police department in this active investigation. The individual who created this message has not been identified. For the safety of our students and staff, an increased police presence on campus will occur, and CHS staff has instructed students to report any suspicious activities they witness," the letter from Principal Eric Anderson says.
"On behalf of Clarkston High School, I want to ensure you that every precaution is being taken to ensure your child’s safety. If you have any question or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. We appreciate any support you can provide in keeping your child calm and limiting any involvement in this issue. Our goal is to keep all our students safe and engaged in the learning environment in our school," Anderson stated.
Anderson also asked parents to direct their children not to engage in social networking (Facebook/Twitter, etc.) and conversations related to this issue because it is now a police matter.
