Dear Parents and Guardians:
This letter is to inform you of an incident that occurred in our school community today. I want to make sure that you have accurate information and dispel any rumors you may have heard about the incident.
Today we discovered graffiti in one of our female restrooms containing a bomb threat to our school. We are taking this situation very seriously and making every effort to ensure the safety and security of our students.
The JCPS K-9 team conducted a thorough sweep of our school today and will do the same again tomorrow. Doss High School administrators along with our school resource officer have also reviewed security camera footage to determine who accessed the restroom during the time the vandalism occurred. We are questioning all of these students and working closely with law enforcement.
Please impress upon your child the importance of sharing information with staff so that we can take appropriate action and not have widespread, unfounded rumors.
If you have any further questions concerning this incident, please do not hesitate to call me at 485-8239. Thank you for your support and assistance in keeping our school safe for everyone
