In follow-up to my telephone call to all of our parents this afternoon, a Marlington Local Schools student posted a potentially threatening message today on social media. In a standard precautionary procedure, the school resource officer immediately notified the sheriff's office and the school went into a secure "Lock Down" mode.
Officers from the Sheriff's Department were dispatched to the High School. No onsite threat was found to exist. An investigation into the student's posting is still underway by the sheriff's office.
The safety and well being of our students and staff is our top priority. We take all threats seriously and respond accordingly.
We thank our parents for their understanding and support as we continue working together to keep our students safe.
Again, no threat was found to exist. If you have any questions, please call me at 330-823-7458.
Joe Knoll, Superintendent
