Dear Parents -
Around 9:45 this morning, Monday, April 16, 2018, we received notification that one of our students shared a text message that included threatening language toward Bishop LeBlond High School.
We immediately contacted police and isolated the student in the office to investigate the credibility of the threat. In the meantime, students were advised to stay in their classrooms as a precaution. Police were able to determine that the threat was not credible and that our students were not in any danger.
The student who made the threat was taken into police custody for questioning and will not be allowed back on school property or at any Bishop LeBlond events.
We appreciate those who came forward to share their concerns about the initial message. The safety of our students, staff, and teachers is the most important thing to us.
