At approximately 5:15 on Wednesday, March 31, the custodial staff at the school made administrators aware of an anonymous threat written on a paper towel dispenser in the eighth-grade boys’ restroom.  School administrators immediately contacted law enforcement and notified the parents of its students that evening.

Since that time, school personnel have worked in conjunction with School Resource Officer, Deputy Will Craig and Bulloch County Schools’ safety director to conduct a swift and thorough investigation to identify a suspect.

On Thursday, April 1, an alleged juvenile suspect was identified.  Law enforcement removed the suspect from campus for questioning. No weapons were found in conjunction with this case.

After completing their investigation, the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office charged the suspect with one count of “terroristic threats and acts.”  The Department of Juvenile Justice will pursue further court action, and the school district will also pursue disciplinary consequences.

Bulloch County Schools treats all threats as credible and immediately involves law enforcement.  Please continue to help us educate our children about school safety plans by visiting www.bullochschools.org/schoolsafety.  Threats of any kind against a school are a crime, and they will result in legal action and school discipline.  

We ask everyone to always be alert and to immediately report any suspicious activity to school administrators or local law enforcement. Ensuring the safety of our schools takes the collaboration of everyone, students, parents, faculty, staff, law enforcement and the community.
