A threat made through an email to the Pratt School District USD 382 was unfounded Tuesday afternoon.
The threat was received Monday afternoon by several administration and staff. Classes were canceled Tuesday.
“(On Tuesday) the Kansas Highway Patrol along with their canine partners inspected each one of our facilities,” Superintendent Suzan Patton said in a note to parents. “Further inspections were conducted by our instructional and custodial staff. Based on these inspections, along with our Pratt Law Enforcement partners, we were able to determine the threats made yesterday are unfounded and our buildings are secure.”
Patton asked that parents use this experience as a teachable moment with children by encouraging them to speak up.
“In addition, let your children know that any future ‘copycat’ events, as a means to get out of school, will result in shortened holiday breaks and/or added days to the end of the school year,” she said.
Students will return to school Wednesday.
