As always, the safety of your children is our number one priority. We are sending this note home to keep you informed of our actions regarding student safety. Last evening we received information from the Pennsylvania Criminal Intelligence Center (PaCIC) that a threat was posted on a social media site, stating a violent act would occur at an unspecified elementary school in Pennsylvania. We immediately contacted the local police and worked with them to ensure our students’ safety. Please know that we are very fortunate to work with such an outstanding police force.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for trusting us and for sending your child to
school today. Your cooperation and support are greatly appreciated.
