The following information was emailed to GOHS families and staff on Thursday evening.
There is a rumor circulating tonight on social media forums regarding a threat made against GOHS tomorrow. Please know that there is no validity to the threat. A student inappropriately made comments in a joking manner in a class this afternoon. The student was immediately interviewed by police and school admin and it was determined not to be credible. It was an unfortunate and irresponsible action on the student's part. We take threats very seriously and if there was any cause for concern, we would have notified you immediately. The original interaction was limited in scope and the involved students and families were contacted by admin earlier today. We apologize for not sharing previously as we believed it was handled and not a credible threat that we needed to notify families about. However, in light of the current rumors circulating, we wanted to advise you that it has been handled by the appropriate authorities and we are confident there is no cause for alarm.
