This message is a follow-up to Friday afternoon’s email regarding an alleged threat of violence at MAMS on Monday. Lower Swatara Township Police have interviewed countless middle school students over the weekend and have concluded that there is no credible threat of violence directed at the Middle School. The police were able to determine that the source of the alleged threat was misconstrued information shared among middle school students during school on Friday which originated from a student having a bad day when frustrated with an assignment.

The District must always take alleged threats seriously. However, it is unfortunate that the embellishment of a situation and circulation of rumors resulted in panic among students and parents. The District appreciates the hard work of the Lower Swatara Township Police department in investigating this matter all weekend. The police have offered to be an extra presence around our schools tomorrow to help lessen students’ and parents’ anxiety as we return to classes tomorrow.
