School Safety Investigation
The following letter was sent home with students today:
March 2, 2018
St. Louis Public Schools became aware of a potential threat made by a student who attends the St. Louis High School. School administrators notified the St. Louis Police Department of the alleged threat. St. Louis School administrators and the St. Louis Police Department are investigating this threat.
The alleged suspect was not allowed at school this morning. The St. Louis Police Department and the St. Louis school administrators have met with the parents and the alleged suspect. The alleged suspect is suspended now. The student will remain suspended and prohibited from entering school property while this matter is being investigated.
This situation is another important reminder for our students and staff to stay vigilant and report any potential concern to the school administrators and law enforcement. We are grateful for the relationship between our local law enforcement and the St. Louis Public Schools.
Thank you for your continued support of our schools.
THIS SITUATION IS NOT RELATED TO THE ONGOING SITUATION AT CENTRAL MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY.
