Dear Fairbanks Families,
I wanted to inform you that while school was in session today there has NOT been a "threat against the school district", a number of rumors have perpetuated themselves throughout the day today. Several other area school districts have had similar situations and this has only added to the confusion and rumors. As your district superintendent, I want to assure you that each and every rumor or potential threat to student safety is investigated by the school administration and also shared with law enforcement. Regardless of whether a threat is deemed credible or not, any threat that is made the district, as well as law enforcement, will treat it extremely serious in our follow up actions with any student(s) that may be involved. Finally, as of this writing, I want to assure you that any potential threat, no matter how minor, has been investigated and determined to be non-credible by school administration and law enforcement. Again, that does not mean there are not consequences for these actions, just that it has been determined that a threat has not been substantiated or is not actionable and students continue to be safe. We have requested additional deputies be present today during school hours solely as a precaution. Please continue to be vigilant and share any concerns or information with school officials and/or law enforcement. Please know that my highest priority is the safety of our students.
