False Threats


Dear Patrons:

I am contacting you to dispel any rumors concerning threats of violence at the Lakeland R-III School District. The rumor spread through the student body and was greatly exaggerated along the way. There have been no threats or acts of violence at the school. Any rumors that have been circulating are false.

The safety of our students is the highest priority at Lakeland. We have investigated all possible leads and have found there to be no truth to the rumors. Local law enforcement officers were consulted in the matter and came to the same conclusion.

We ask that you help us by remaining calm and reassuring your children that they are safe at school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Th ank you for your support throughout the year. We appreciate all that you do to help support education at Lakeland.
