Notice to Families: Social Media Threats

Late last night, the district received another social media post made by someone threatening violence within our schools.

Our SCH safety and security personnel alerted the Hammond Police Department of this threat, and as always, immediately launched an investigation. HPD quickly identified the person who made the threat and took them into custody. Criminal charges are expected.

We encourage parents/guardians to speak with their students about the seriousness of any false or prank reporting. While some misguided students may consider these acts harmless, these threats can lead to felony convictions (even for minors), time in jail, or up to $10,000 in fines.

If you are aware of any false or prank reporting, contact the Hammond Police Department at (219) 852-6490.
