Muskogee middle school responds to school threat
MUSKOGEE, Okla. (KTUL) —
Alice Robertson Junior High School in Muskogee said they investigated a threat made by one student toward other students.
As soon as administration was notified of the threat, officials immediately found the student and worked to get more information.
Muskogee Public Schools police investigated and determined the threat was not credible and the students and staff were not in imminent danger.
The district said they ask their students to report anything suspicious to school administration and this is an example of their students being proactive.
“I appreciate that students felt comfortable communicating their concerns to staff. This is just another example of the ownership culture we are trying to create throughout the district,” said Dr. Jarod Mendenhall, Superintendent of Muskogee Public Schools. “We emphasize if a student sees something to say something.”
