School Of The Osage Cancels Classes Following Threat

The School of the Osage has canceled classes today after a second threat of violence at the school.

Yesterday, the school district faced two separate threats originating from social media platforms. However, subsequent investigations have shed light on the credibility of these threats.

The first threat, initially causing concern, was ultimately deemed not credible by school officials. It was discovered that the same danger had been circulated across the nation, indicating that it lacked authenticity.

Later on Wednesday evening, the district made an announcement regarding a targeted threat, prompting them to take precautionary measures. This specific threat referenced the district and included a firearm photo.

In response to the situation, the district has canceled all classes today. They will implement distance learning protocols, utilizing platforms such as Canvas and Remind as a precautionary measure. Furthermore, all school buildings will remain closed during this period.

These steps have been taken out of an abundance of caution to prioritize the safety and well-being of students, staff, and the entire school community.

The district will continue to provide updates as the situation unfolds and provide further information regarding the resumption of regular school activities.
