This afternoon, two Keystone Oaks High School students were overheard making comments about harming the school. The teacher immediately reported the incident to District administration. The students were questioned and their backpacks and lockers were promptly searched.
It has been determined that no weapon was present on school property and that there was no immediate threat to students or to the campus. It has also been determined that today’s incident is unrelated to any of the incidents that have been reported over the past week.
The Keystone Oaks School District takes all threats seriously and any students involved in any incident like this will disciplined in accordance with Keystone Oaks School District’s policies and the Student Code of Conduct and will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. We encourage you to take a few moments to talk with your child or children about the consequences they will face if they threaten to harm a student or a school building, even if the comments are made in jest.
In light of these recent incidents, and to ensure the safety of our students while they are on school property, we are re-evaluating our safety and security procedures and have reminded all staff members of the importance of following the procedures that are in place.
