Edgewood administrators were notified this evening, Monday, September 16, of a rumor circulating on a school bus involving a possible threat to “shoot up the high school”. Immediate action was taken to investigate the rumor, but after numerous inquiries and with assistance from local law enforcement the alleged rumor could not be substantiated. Out of an abundance of caution, the Butler County Sheriff's Office will be providing additional presence at the high school tomorrow.
We take all threats seriously and will continue to work together with the BCSO to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We appreciate the individuals who reported this information. We can not stress enough the importance when you “see something, say something” and thank you for those who did.
