Raymond School District Responds to Social Media Threat
RAYMOND — Superintendent Tina McCoy reports that the Raymond School District and Raymond Police Department responded to a threat made by a student on social media.
Early Wednesday, School leaders were made aware of a threat posted to Instagram yesterday evening by a male student at the Iber Holmes Gove Middle School. Officials immediately took action coordinating with the Raymond Police Department to initiate an investigation.
Through that investigation, it has become clear that there is no danger to the school community.
School officials have already contacted the parents of the student involved, and the student will be disciplined in accordance with the district’s code of conduct.
“The safety of our school community is always our top priority, and I’m grateful for the work of everyone involved to quickly address this incident and ensure our students, faculty and staff are protected,” Superintendent McCoy said. “There is no place for this kind of behavior in our schools, and this should serve as a reminder of the importance of reporting threats online to the proper authorities.”
The school day continued without interruption Wednesday.
