Letter: Ferguson student made threats, charged by police

Posted on March 2nd, 2018

The following letter went home with Ferguson students today.

Dear Ferguson Parent(s) / Guardian(s),

This morning, a middle school student was overheard threatening to bring a gun to school to harm staff. Administrators detained the student and immediately collaborated with York City School District Police and the York City Police Department, taking the student into City Police custody. The student has been charged by the York City Police Department, suspended from school, and recommended for expulsion. There was no interruption to the school day.

Student safety remains our greatest priority. Please continue to discuss with your children that it is against the law to make threats such as this and – should your child hear a threat – it’s very important to tell a staff member, teacher, or administrator immediately.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and support as we work together for the safety and security of our students, staff, and community.

Sincerely,

Melanie Still

Principal


Estimados Padre(s)/Tutores de Ferguson,

Esta mañana, se escuchó a un estudiante de secundaria amenazando con llevar un arma a la escuela para dañar al personal. Los administradores detuvieron al estudiante e inmediatamente colaboraron con la Policía del Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de York y el Departamento de Policía de la Ciudad de York, llevando al estudiante a la custodia de la Policía de la Ciudad. El estudiante ha sido acusado por el Departamento de Policía de la ciudad de York, suspendido de la escuela y recomendado para expulsión. No hubo interrupción en el día escolar.

La seguridad de los estudiantes sigue siendo nuestra mayor prioridad. Continúe hablando con sus hijos que es ilegal hacer amenazas como esta y, si su hijo escucha una amenaza, es muy importante que se lo comunique inmediatamente a un miembro del personal, maestro o administrador.

Gracias por su continua cooperación y apoyo mientras trabajamos juntos por la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, personal y comunidad.
