  • Good morning,

    Today, some Gordon County Schools students & staff notified administration about a message they viewed on a social media platform which threatened violence at an unnamed school in an unnamed system/district.

    Following nationwide trends on social media, generic claims of this type continue to circulate across the country.

    Gordon County Schools emergency response team worked with local law enforcement to investigate the validity of these claims. During the investigation, law enforcement discovered the message was a threat of violence made in another school system/county.

    Thank you to the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office for your support and quick action. Also, thank you to our students, staff and community members for remaining vigilant in your efforts to protect our Gordon County Schools community.

    The safety of our students and staff continues to be our priority. We will remain diligent and have a heightened awareness at all schools.

    Thank you,

    Gordon County Schools Communications

  • Good morning,

    Following other social media trends circulating nationwide, another generic message has been circulating on social media with the potential threat of violence at a school.

    Our administrators and emergency response team continue to work with local police but have found no credible source at this time.

    The safety of our students & staff remains our first priority. To err on the side of caution, we will have an increased police presence today.

    If any new information arises, we will advise the public via our social media platforms, website, and direct parent communication via email & text. Please report any information you may have heard or may hear moving forward. 

    We look forward to welcoming your student to school safely today.

    Thank you,

    Gordon County Schools Communications
