Dear Parents and Staff: Late last night, it was discovered that one of our students had shared a very alarming and inappropriate post on Instagram. Administration immediately contacted the police and they visited the homes and talked with two students and parents at the police station. We have also discovered that the post was “ liked” by some of our students. Administration has also contacted the majority of those parents. This evening’s unfortunate event further substantiates the need for parents to be aware, closely monitor, and supervise your son’s/daughters computer activity. We appreciate your support. Dr. Ken James Superintendent of Schools
