To Our Springboro Families:
As you may already be aware, there have been posts this week on TikTok stating on Friday, Dec. 17, there is a challenge to call in bomb threats, school shooting threats, etc. at schools in the United States. These posts did not originate from Springboro or the surrounding area.
Our local law enforcement believes that the unspecified threat some students have been discussing and brought to the attention of administration is part of this TikTok challenge. As of today (Dec. 16), there have been no local, credible threats toward Springboro Schools.
Social media is a powerful tool often used to influence others, and not always with the best intentions. It is important to remain vigilant when it involves these types of perceived threats. Please take time to talk to your students about the influence of social media and the potential consequences of engaging in this type of behavior. We must take every threat seriously and students face the possibility of suspension or expulsion, and possible legal consequences for making threats.
We again want to say thank you to the students, parents, and community members who continue to follow our “See Something. Say Something” approach. We all have a role in keeping our students and community safe.
The Springboro Police Department will have an increased presence at our schools on Friday, Dec. 17, strictly as a precautionary measure. We are grateful for the support of our students, teachers, staff, community, and local law enforcement. Thank you.
