Good morning Pottstown Middle School families,
This morning a student reported that they saw what appeared to be a weapon in the possession of another student. We immediately activated our safety plan, and in conjunction with the Pottstown Police Department and our staff, we interviewed students that fit the description and conducted appropriate searches.
We are happy to report that we found no dangerous items, and there was no credible threat to the safety of our students and staff at any time. The school day continued without disruption. Please reinforce with your child the importance of sharing any information regarding school safety issues.
While such reports will undoubtedly elicit fear and uncertainty, we hope that the facts provided have helped to put your mind at ease. Be assured that the safety of our students and staff is our primary priority.
Should you become aware of any situation that compromises a safe school environment, please contact the school at 610-970-6665
