From Superintendent Jordan:
At approximately 9:45 AM this morning local authorities informed us that a bomb threat had been received specifically naming the Ridge View Community School. All students and staff were safely evacuated to Dexter Regional High School where parents were reunified with their children. A State Police canine bomb-sniffing unit performed an extensive search of the school and found nothing suspicious. The school will be in session tomorrow with an added Police presence. Thank you to all of the staff, students, and the Dexter Police Department for handling a very stressful situation in a calm professional manner.
We are deeply saddened by the recent incident involving a shooting in our State. Here at SAD #46, we will continue to operate with a regular schedule.
We understand that this event raises safety concerns, and we want to emphasize that we are in contact with our local police. And while there is no direct threat to our school from this event, we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure our students and staff’s security and well-being. We encourage everyone to remain highly aware and report suspicious activity immediately. Our top priority is the safety of our school community, and we are committed to providing a secure learning environment for everyone involved.
Superintendent Kevin Jordan
