Dear Students, Parents, Staff & Community,
I want to let you know about an incident in our school community that district staff was initially made aware of on Monday, March 19. Through additional information discovered today, we found out that a student made a threat to a small number of students and staff. The student has been suspended indefinitely and is not allowed on school grounds. We contacted law enforcement and they are investigating the incident.
As always, the Ione School District takes the safety of our students and staff seriously. We want to communicate openly about situations like these, so that you are informed.
Also, we would like to remind you about www.safeoregon.com, an anonymous statewide tip line. ANY student, parent, staff member or community member can report a safety threat or potential act of violence via email, call, text, mobile app or website. School security is the responsibility of ALL of us – if you see something, say something.
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call me.
Rollie Marshall, Principal
Ione School District
