Update Regarding Recent Tik Tok Posts

Dear Parents and Guardians,


As a school community, student and staff safety is our number one priority. 


We recently received reports about a number of Tik Tok photo/posts that have been circulating in schools in our area and around the country and are said to be associated with school shootings or a school shooting day.

 

Please know that we have referred this information to the Washington County Sheriff.  This issue has also been referred to the NYS Police, who have noted an increase in these types of postings since the Oxford High School tragedy. 


At this time, law enforcement officials have indicated that these posts are not credible and there are no specific threats to the Argyle Central School.


As a district, we encourage you to speak with your children about the importance of sharing any information that they might have about any potential threats to our students, staff or schools; any concerning behaviors being displayed by their friends and classmates; or about anything that “just doesn’t seem right” about what they are seeing or hearing in their school. 


The Argyle Central School District is committed to ensuring the safety of everyone entering the building.  Should you receive any information about this that you believe requires immediate action, please call 911 to report it. If you have information that you believe we should be aware of, please contact your child’s building principal or me as soon as possible. 


In the meantime, we will continue to keep you updated with any information that we receive.


Thank you,


Michael Healey
