The Newport Special School District and Newport Police conducted a thorough investigation into the message discovered in the restroom on campus. That investigation has been completed and appropriate action has been taken. The District will always take threats serious and always keep the safety of our students and staff the driving force behind any investigation.
The District encourages parents to speak with your children about the seriousness of making threats, even as a joke. Thank you to the Newport Police for their support and to our parents and community for allowing us to investigate this situation without being inundated with calls.
