Threat to NNHS Not Credible
January 12, 2017
Last evening, we received report of a social media post making a threat to Newton North. We reported the post to the Newton police and they responded immediately. The specific post was reviewed and the source was identified. After a thorough investigation, the Newton police have determined that the threat is not credible.
Based on the advice of Newton Police, we will go forward with a normal school day today (Friday.) Our strong partnership with Newton police, as well the results of the investigation, give us confidence in our decision to hold school. Please know that your student will arrive at a safe and secure building this morning.
We take the safety of our students, our staff, and our entire school community very seriously. As use of social media grows, we must remain vigilant. We thank you for your understanding and support as we ensure a safe school environment for all.
