Threats are Taken Seriously
We are committed to ensuring a safe learning environment for your children, and we are fortunate to have great partnerships with parents in our district. With school threats occurring more often in school districts, it is important that we take a moment to lean on this partnership and ask parents to have a conversation with their children regarding the serious implications of making a threat on a school. Such behavior may leave a lasting impact on a child’s education and future. The impact on the entire family is profound. Rather than waiting, we are asking parents to personally discuss this issue with their children now. Whether a student perceives making a threat as a joke or not a big deal, making a threat on a school could result in suspension, expulsion, and/or being charged as an adult with a felony. According to State of WI statue 947.015: “Whoever intentionally conveys or causes to be conveyed any threat or false information, knowing such to be false, concerning an attempt or alleged attempt being made or to be made to destroy any property by the means of explosives is guilty of a Class 1 felony.” Thank you for taking a moment to have this discussion with your children.
