Pendleton County Schools are committed to the safety and education of all our students. Essential to this commitment is open communication with our families and school community about any potential issues when they arise. Pendleton County School administration communicated the following message to their school families today:
As you may be aware, there are rumors circulating today about the threat of school violence based on a photo being circulated on social media across the country. Similar rumors are spreading in many communities across the country and other school districts. We will continue to monitor this situation and consult with the police if necessary. At this time there are no known or specific threats to Pendleton County Schools.
Again, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority, and we appreciate our law enforcement agencies keeping our school safe and secure.
