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.
Teachers, Ed Techs, and Staff from Ridge View Community School, Dexter Regional High School, and Tri-County Technical Center have returned! We welcomed new staff, shared exciting or new news from over the summer, prepared for our students returning, and engaged in some important professional learning and planning in the areas of Social and Emotional Learning, Trauma-Informed Schools, Influences on Student Achievement, flexible learning environments, school improvement, student and school safety, evidence-based decision making and planning, and more! We certainly have LOTS of exciting things happening in our school district this year! It was a busy two days (for sure), but we are so excited to begin the 2019-2020 school year, and welcome all of our returning and new families to the MSAD #46 family!
