District Statement Regarding Recent Reports of Threats To Schools

October 5, 2016

The Tri-Creek School Corporation is aware of the nationwide media coverage concerning “reports of clowns posting threats against schools on social media”.  Our district Student Resource Officer, in partner with local law enforcement, actively investigates issues that pose any possible disruption and/or potential risk to our students or staff.  This includes the thorough investigation of threats and the pursuing of criminal charges against individuals who make them. The district has not received any threats of this nature at this time but will remain vigilant in our safety awareness and protocols.  We ask that you please take the moment to discuss with your children the proper use of social media and the potential risks of making threats in this fashion. Again, the safety of our children and the community surrounding our schools is a daily top priority.
