Today (12/2/21) building administrators met with students by grade level at HMS regarding a rumor that students were talking about in school. The rumor was that a student had made a comment about a school shooting. Upon investigation, this comment was unfounded. However, hearing this rumor was concerning for students. We are appreciative of those students who brought this rumor to our attention. The goals of today’s grade level meetings were to remind students that school violence is a very serious topic, to ensure they know the situation was addressed, and to remind them how damaging rumors can be.
