The FBI issued a general awareness statement about unsubstantiated information they received relating to a possible school shooting. There was a shooting threat for Kentucky on August 28th and for Arkansas on August 29th. The FBI could NOT confirm the source of the reporting party. At this time, the complaint is unsubstantiated.
Somerset Independent Schools is not aware of any specific threat involving any of our schools.
Our administration will continue to work closely with the school resource officers and Somerset Police Department to monitor and take all threats seriously. As always, the safety and security of our students is a main priority. We are committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students and faculty at all times. Questions about school safety can be directed to Tim Ham, District Safe Schools Coordinator.
Somerset Independent School District will be open on August 28th, 2019.
