Alice Robertson Jr. High School’s new building has been open less than a month, and it’s already been vandalized, according to the principal, Ryan Buell. Several students have been “severely disciplined” for damaging the building in response to a Tik Tok challenge, he stated in a letter to parents.
Hilldale Schools, meanwhile, received a threat from a student to bring a gun to school, allegedly by the son of an administrator at the school.
Superintendent Erik Puckett initially sent this in response to a question about the threat:
Our staff investigates the possible threat or allegation of a threat. IF a threat is deemed to have been made, then a threat assessment is done by trained staff. IF a threat is considerate to be real and possible, then discipline actions are taken. We involve our school SROs in the process of all possible legal matters including possible threats.
Asked specifically if a threat had been made, he responded “We were made aware of a possible verbal threat and yes sir we then followed our procedure.”
