We were made aware of a threat against the school around midnight. There is a lot of inaccurate information out on social media regarding this matter. Please know that the school and our law enforcement agencies jumped into immediate action. Law enforcement in Manito, Mason County, and Tazewell County have been involved and have investigated the claim. Law enforcement agencies have informed us that there is no credible evidence to support the accusations. However, we have asked the parents of the accused student to keep said student home today and tomorrow for their safety. In addition, Tazewell County police department has provided us a large police presence today to offer additional safety and security to our students.
