A threat against Jasper Middle School as made Thursday night.
According to the Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools Facebook page, Jasper Middle School Administrators were made aware that a student made a threatening statement regarding gun violence in school. School administrators investigated the threat and contacted the Jasper Police Department. It has been determined that students and staff were never in any danger.
The school district wants to remind students and parents that the use of such threats as a means to harass or intimidate is not a laughing matter and will result in both school and legal consequences for students who choose to make the choice to do so. The school also encourages parents to talk with their children about the consequences of such decisions.
The school district says that the student that reported the threat made the right call. Students are always encouraged to follow a “See Something, Say Something” approach with safety concerns.
