Jenkintown High School

Important Announcement for Parents

Dear Parents,

I am writing to inform you that the school district’s administration was made aware of a threat made by a student today in school. The threat was immediately reported to the middle/high school principal. In every case, threats of this nature are investigated completely and the school immediately contacted the local police. The district is taking appropriate action with respect to the student in light of the circumstances. The police and school district will continue to work together to provide a safe environment for all students. Due to the confidentiality rights of the student, no other details can be provided at this time.

I also want to use this time to request that parents remind their children of the importance of reporting any and all comments and behaviors that could be considered threatening or dangerous in any way.
