On Monday, September 28th, students in the Newport School District notified administrators of a school shooting threat written in a restroom on campus. The District contacted local law enforcement and is working with the Newport Police Department to investigate the threat. The District encourages parents to speak with your children about the seriousness of making threats, even as a joke. All threats to our District or students are taken seriously and investigated, and any students caught making threats may face possible criminal charges and expulsion from school. The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. The District will provide updated information once it becomes available.
