We, as many others, have been monitoring the social media post that has referenced the threat of possible school shootings on August 29th. Federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies, as well as our own MSD Campus Safety staff, are vigilantly monitoring the situation. At present the threat is believed to be nothing more than a hoax. Moreover, nothing in the post specified our school district or even districts within our region. Nonetheless, we will continue to monitor the situation and take prudent precautions to make certain that our students and staff remain safe. Please remember that you too can assist in keeping our campuses safe by simply reporting anything that you see or hear to any one of our local law enforcement agencies. We will continue to keep you updated as information merits. Thank you for your continued support, thoughts and prayers. #OnePatriotOneCommunity
