Another threat, another investigation into student threat at Jasper

Jasper – (NNDC) From Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools

Jasper Middle School Administrators were made aware that a student made a threatening statement regarding gun violence in school. An investigation into the threat was completed by school administrators and the Jasper Police Department was contacted. Both the school and police department will continue to investigate the situation with consequences likely for the student . It has been determined that students and staff were never in any danger.

The student making the report did the right thing by reporting the issue. Students are always encouraged to follow a “See Something, say Something” approach with safety concerns.

The use of such threats as a means to harass or intimidate is not a laughing matter and will result in both school and legal consequences for students who choose to make the choice to do so. We encourage parents to talk with their children about the consequences of such decisions.
