Meeting Summary

News Release

December 10, 2015 – Edmonton, KY

Early Thursday morning the principal and other leaders of Metcalfe County High School were made aware that at least two students had made a threat of aggression towards the high school. District officials and law enforcement were immediately notified. Within minutes the students in question were isolated and a full investigation was initiated.

At this time the investigation is continuing. Those students who were directly involved have been identified and are being dealt with as dictated by the school discipline policy and the legal system.

“We take any and all threats seriously”, said Chris Huffman, Safe Schools Director. “It’s important for our community to know that the high school leadership team followed exact protocol and the situation was under complete control from the moment the information was shared. At no time was any student in danger” Huffman added. “We are confident we have identified the main individuals responsible for this, but we will continue the investigation until we are completely satisfied that all questions have been answered.” He concluded by saying “We can’t emphasize enough to our students and entire community…if you see or hear something that just doesn’t sound right, please let a school official or law enforcement know. It is much better to be wrong than to let something just pass by.”

School officials have indicated there was no disruption to the school day and all activities will continue as planned this week and leading up to Christmas break.
