“This is Ms. Whiteman, principal of Davis Middle School. In an effort to share accurate information, I would like to provide you with the following facts. Last night, a Davis Middle School student was arrested for making a threat on social media against one of our teachers. No one has been harmed, and the student is in a secured detention facility. At this time, there is no evidence to indicate a threat against others. Please know that we have taken measures to ensure the continued safety of our students and staff. As a precaution, there will be increased officer presence throughout the day at our school,” said the principal.
A parent who was interviewed expressed her concern and said, “I’m just floored by it. I can’t believe that that situation is going around in our community.”
The teacher who was supposed to be murdered was checked by authorities and she reported that she was completely aware of the situation.
