The message in full:
This Is Principal Ed Capitano with an important message regarding events on campus today.
Today we discovered content on a student’s cell phone that suggested a planned threat to the school. School Police are investigating the students intentions to implement such a plan and if there was any real threat to the school.
The student has been removed from the classroom at this time and School police continue to investigate. I will provide a future update if I receive additional information.
Parents, this issue was brought to our attention by a student who reported the information once they became aware of it. Our school safety is dependent on students, staff and parents trusting their gut and reporting information they see or hear.
There are very serious criminal and disciplinary implications for making threats to schools. Please use this opportunity to talk with your child about reporting any information that places their safety or the safety of our school at risk.
There is no action required of you from this message. Thank you in advance for your support.
