Please take a moment to review the below message which is being shared by the Sheboygan Area School District:
The Sheboygan Area School District (SASD) has become aware of troubling posts that have been shared today (2/9/23) regarding a threat to school safety at South High School. The SASD administration and Sheboygan Police Department worked together to determine the threat was not credible.
This appears to be a situation that has affected many school districts across the country in recent days. There have been numerous reports of schools receiving internet-based phone calls with these threats, which are unsubstantiated. Ours was one of the school districts affected.
While this threat was a likely hoax, we understand the anxiety a situation like this can cause for our families, students, staff, and community. Please know that our top priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. We take any and all reports of potential threats seriously, and we are making every effort to maintain an environment where students and staff feel safe.
As always, when social media is used in this manner, it is taken seriously by the school administration along with the police, and collaborative efforts are made to investigate and inform the community. We will continue to closely monitor the situation.
If you or your child hear of a threat to a school, no matter the time of day or night, immediately report the threat to the police or a school official so an investigation can commence. This is the single most important thing we can all do to keep our schools safe. We work closely with the Sheboygan Police Department to determine the threat level and subsequent actions.
As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students.
