Dear Battle Ground Middle School Parents/Guardians, I want you to be aware of a recent incident that serves as a reminder that the Tippecanoe School Corporation treats any threats made against our schools and students very seriously. Some of our students came forward today with information about another student making threatening comments. Our school resource officer and officers with the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office investigated and determined the student had no intention or means of carrying out the threat.
I encourage you to use this incident to talk to your student about the consequences of making potentially threatening comments or posting them on social media. Some cases can result in criminal charges, along with disciplinary action from the school. Please encourage your student to say something if they see or hear anything suspicious. I am proud of our students who came forward to report this incident and appreciate the quick response from our local law enforcement agencies.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Mrs. Day, Battle Ground Middle School Principal
