For Immediate Release

The following is a joint statement from the Scott County School District and Georgetown Police Department.

 

Just after noon on August 20, 2014 we were informed of threatening phone calls pertaining to Scott County High School.  Together Georgetown Police Department and the Scott County School District investigated the situation.  According to this investigation, the unconfirmed threat was a prank.  All necessary precautions were taken in this matter.  It was quickly determined that students/staff were never in danger.  The Scott County School District and Georgetown Police Department work together closely to ensure the safety of students and staff.

 

The Scott County School District and Georgetown Police Department will continue to investigate to determine the source of the calls.  Scott County Schools would like to commend the efforts of Georgetown Police Department in their quick response to this matter.

Important Information

A threatening anonymous voice mail message was received at the Central Office of Scott County Schools.  School district personnel worked in collaboration with Georgetown Police Department and Scott County Sheriff’s Department to investigate.  The call was traced to a student.  At no time were students and/or staff members in danger.

The Scott County School District, Georgetown Police Department, and Scott County Sheriff’s Department respond together to ensure the safety of all students and staff.  We would like to express our appreciation to community law enforcement personnel.

Scott County Schools Comprehensive District Improvement Plan cdip3
Message from Superintendent Putty Message From Superintendent

2/19/13

The safety of our students and staff is the top priority of Scott County Schools.  We take all threats and rumors of threats seriously and investigate each to ensure the safety of our schools.

Late last night, rumors were shared with school administrators that someone had made threats toward students at the high school.  School and district administrators immediately began working with law enforcement officials to investigate.  Overnight, law enforcement was able to track down the source of this rumor to someone out-of-state nine hours away where police confirmed this person has no access to weapons or transportation to Kentucky.  Rumors stemmed from emotional statements made online.

In order to reassure students, staff, and families and to provide a heightened sense of awareness to safety, law enforcement increased their presence on the high school campus.

We understand that in the age of social media, rumors multiply and spread very quickly.  However, on behalf of Scott County Schools, I want to thank those that brought the rumors to our attention.  Additionally, I want to personally thank Chief of Police Bosse, the Georgetown Police Department, and our school administrators for their continued collaboration and support in keeping the safety of our students and staff the top priority.
