We wanted to inform you that a few students made some offhand remarks this morning about the threatening rumors you were informed about last week at Scott County Middle School. As a result, additional rumors circulated throughout the school today.
Because safety is our first priority, school administrators worked with law enforcement and district administrators to fully investigate. We were able to quickly track down the source of the remarks, have addressed the situation, and wanted to let you know that that at no time was anyone unsafe.
Because safety is of the highest priority for Scott County Schools, we thought it necessary to inform parents of this situation. We are thankful that students brought these concerns to the attention of teachers and administrators. We are appreciative of our partnership with Georgetown Police Department and their timely response to this situation to ensure our students’ safety.
It is important to us that all stakeholders receive accurate information. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 502-863-7202.

Scott County Middle School
