A message from FALLS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS

February 19, 2020

Dear FCPS Parents,

In an effort to keep you as informed as possible, we feel it is necessary to inform you of an incident that occurred today ( Wednesday) at Falls City Middle School.

A FCMS student made threats regarding a school shooting to other students. The threat was reported to school administration. The school administrator then immediately notified law enforcement and began an investigation. School disciplinary action along with possible law enforcement action will be taken as appropriate. At no time today, was there any immediate danger to any student or staff member. The procedures that we have in place allowed us to handle this situation with little disruption to the other students in the building, most of whom were unaware that a threat had been made.

The safety of students and staff is the top priority for school officials and law enforcement who work together to resolve issues like this as soon as possible.

The FCPS asks parents and students to contact school officials or law enforcement if you have any information regarding a threat.

Thank you,

Tim Heckenlively

Superintendent
