The following was sent to parents in the Shelton School district today:
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Today, we had the police at our school in response to some Facebook messages regarding a potential fight that was supposedly going to take place at Oakland Bay Junior High. The fight was going to be between one of our students and a young man who is not enrolled in our school district.
The police were given an anonymous tip last night. They discovered that the two young men who were threatening to fight, were both displaying weapons on their Facebook pages.
Administration and Police met this morning at 6:30am to devise a plan to ensure the safety of all students. Administration followed all of the recommendations of the police department.
After the officers assessed the situation, they did not feel that there was an imminent threat or reason to go into a full lock-down. However, officers were on our school campus the entire day, to prevent any dangerous activity.
If you have any further information regarding this situation, please feel free to call the police or Oakland Bay Junior High School. Please know we take your students' education and safety very seriously and are doing all we can to keep your students safe.
Bracken Budge, Principal
