In an effort to keep our community informed of the situation at The Hill City Jr-Sr High School. We are issuing one last statement.
Administrators from The Hill City High School, Officers of The Hill City Police Department, and parents, along with the students involved in this incident met this morning.
The result of the meeting determined that social media and rumors played a part in this situation. In the end, the information was still inconclusive as to whether or not a threat was made.
An all school assembly was held, both in the morning, and afternoon, to give students information about dealing with rumors, and to stress reporting to proper authorities when threats are possible.
We thank the parents, students and the community for their support in this matter, and hope they continue to support us in future instances, should they arise.
We would also like to thank The Graham County Sheriff's Office for their assistance.
We now consider this matter closed, and will not be issuing any further statements.
