AlertNow Message for Parents and Guardians for Cudahy High School

Dec. 19, 2012

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Like many other schools (especially high schools) across the area and the nation, we have had rumors of threats to the High School circulating at school and in the community. Given the media attention to 12/21 and the recent tragedy in Connecticut, these rumors have caused significant concern. The rumors focus in on an idea that a terrible event is going to happen this Friday at the High School.

Please know that our administrative staff and police liaison officers have been responding to all the information we have received. This has included discussions with students, some of their families, and a wide variety of social media monitoring. It is important to understand that none of the information we have received has led us to believe that there is a viable threat to anyone here at CHS, this Friday or any other day.

This coming Friday is an early release day for all buildings in the District. We intend to continue with that schedule. Regretfully, we are not going to hold our annual, school-wide music assembly that morning. We realize that going forth with the assembly might heighten the anxiety about feeling safe at school, and that’s the last thing we want to do. Apologies go to the students and staff members who have diligently prepared for this performance.

We appreciate all of the phone calls and emails that have come to us from parents and others in the community regarding this issue. We have taken each communication seriously and will continue to do so. If anyone has any specific information, please contact us.

Please understand that we take the spread of false information and/or threats very seriously. Engaging in this type of activity distracts many from their learning. If students are found to be involved with things like this, serious consequences will be enforced from both the school and the police department.

Student safety continues to be our top priority. Clear and timely communication with our families is also important to us. Our goal here is to make sure that our families are well informed and understand the things that are going on at school.

Sincerely,
Christopher E. Haeger
Principal – Cudahy High School
