Thank you to the Salem Police Department for their work on the investigation of a potential school safety concern. There was no credible threat. Police have determined that the Salem Middle School student was responding to an inappropriate joke. We commend the students for alerting administration and teachers of a possible safety concern, however; as the situation was discussed among students after school hours (in person and online), the facts of the case were distorted, altered, and misrepresented. Additional untrue comments were rumored in connection with this incident. Again, there is no credible threat.
