A threat was made by a South Laurel High School student on social media. Law enforcement was immediately notified and began investigating. Since then, all parties involved have been identified and law enforcement has taken action. While there is no evidence to support a viable threat, we continue to take every possible action to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff.
We appreciate the quick and efficient response of the London City Police Department, School Resource Officers and School Administration. Any and all threats are taken very serious with student safety always being a top priority. We encourage parents and guardians to talk with their child about the importance of reporting any threat, whether made verbally, physically or through the use of social media to a school official or local law enforcement. The procedures and protocols put in place by the district and school worked to address and alleviate this alleged concern.
