Administration and law enforcement have conducted a thorough investigation. Principal Doran states that law enforcement has concluded that there is no validity to these rumors. In a statement, Principal Doran said, “We truly appreciate the information that was shared with us throughout this process, as well as the timely response from law enforcement. Their continued partnership with the school district is a key component to ensuring the safety of all.” ISD 200 reiterates that it is important to remind students to report rumors directly to administration or law enforcement and to not share unfounded information with peers.
