Social Media Threat to a School

Statement, 2.16.18

We wanted to inform you about a social media threat that we found out about today. In response to the threat, the MNPS threat assessment team immediately reported to the school to interview the person accused of making the threats. The school administration and SRO conducted their investigation and concluded that disciplinary actions are warranted in accordance with district policy. MNPS is grateful for individuals who came forward with information surrounding this threat and would like to encourage everyone to do the same – even if they consider the threat to be a joke. MNPS takes student safety very seriously and will investigate every threat thoroughly, and individuals who make threats against schools, staff, and students; have the potential to be criminally charged for their actions. Dupont families, we know you are concerned about the safety of our children which is why we work so closely with law enforcement and other agencies to address situations like this one. Thank you for your cooperation and support. Together we will keep our schools safe for learning.



Warm regards,
