Christopher Bernier, the superintendent of Lee County schools sent out a message asking for the parent’s help to keep the students safe.

According to a release from The School District of Lee County, the communities priority is straightforward, and it revolves around the safety, security, and education of the students.

Recently, there have been an increased number of incidents that involve threats that have been made by, and against the students.

The release goes on to say that if a student does see something they must say something because safety is everyone’s responsibility. The staff and School Resource Officers will support students that come forward and protect any information provided.

Threatening behavior will not be tolerated whatsoever, and students will be disciplined at the school level if they’re involved. Although the students may also face serious legal consequences as a result of their threatening behavior.

A student’s future may be impacted by the consequences of their threatening actions. That’s because the consequences of those actions may bridge childhood into adulthood.

Bernier goes on to ask parents to talk with their children about how important appropriate behavior is while online and at school.
