There have also been a number of great questions and suggestions that will allow us to continue to improve our protocols and ensure the safety of students, staff, and guests at BHS.
We will be following up with all of students on Monday morning as well to get their input on the events that transpired and any suggestions that they have to help us continue to improve the safety of our school.
Here are a few of the questions to which I hope to add some clarification:
- Why would you proceed with school on Friday morning when you knew about the threat Thursday night??? I didn't get a call.
It was a testament to our students and their concern for keeping our school safe that they brought this new information forward. This is the type of ongoing communication that is necessary in high schools.
In regards to not receiving a call, anyone who did not get a connect-ed message on either Thursday night or Friday should call the BHS Main Office (781) 273-7662 on Monday to check their contact numbers.
- Since the threat was actually for March 23rd::: will the students be attending classes on Monday?I'm assuming so but as a precaution I'm hoping there will still be police force and tight security. One arrest doesn't warrant a complete feeling of safety on the day of a threat.
We are confident that we have resolved this particular threat and that we will be back to business as usual on Monday.
- I was just wondering... are we going to find out who the student who did this was?
We will never publicly announce the names of any students involved in violations of our school rules or local and state laws. It is against the law to do so. The police can release this type of information if the students is not a minor.
