Statement from Goshen Community Schools and Goshen Police Department

2/23/2018

This morning, school and police department officials became aware of statements of concern posted on a GHS student’s Facebook profile. In further investigating the situation, it was decided to have additional police presence at GHS today as a precaution. However, the investigation has shown that there were no credible threats to anyone. In keeping with our tradition of transparency, we wanted to make the community aware of this situation.

The tragic events that unfolded in Florida last week are difficult for many students to process and understand.  It is not uncommon for young people to express their anxiety in misguided or inappropriate ways, and Goshen authorities will continue to take any such expressions very seriously. While this threat was deemed not to be credible, the school district and law enforcement officials always work together to ensure the safety of all students and staff, and will continue to be diligent in our efforts to do so.

Thank you to the entire community for partnering with us for the safety and well-being of every Goshen resident.
