  1. Wondering why we aren’t filled in on the details of this continuous threat. Is it a web based program of sorts?, a phone call? Social Media? I am a parent of a son that does attend this school and he as well has no idea other that he heard rumours it was through a social media source which he mentioned was rumored to be snapchat. He also mentioned that it has been rumored to be a gun threat. Again, these are just rumors and no teacher or school spokesperson has alerted the public nor the students to my knowledge of specific details regarding this, which I find to be unhelpful to the situation. I do expect better
