Low-level threat investigated at Pulaski Middle School

An electronic message was sent out to parents of Pulaski Middle School via the SchoolReach system Tuesday morning, advising of a “low-level threat” that was being investigated by police and school officials.

The message from Principal Teresa Reed stated, “A low-level threat was scribbled on the stall in one of our restrooms. We contacted Pulaski Police Department and detectives are working with us to determine the source of the message.” It went on to reassure parents that the school takes any threat to its students seriously and the incident would be investigated until there were “no avenues left to explore.”

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Thomas Brewster, confirmed Tuesday evening the alleged threat was found scribbled on a wall and referred to it as “non-credible.” He reiterated the fact that parents had been notified of the incident, “however, administrators and staff will maintain high visibility throughout the day (Wednesday),” said Brewster.

This threat follows a notice about another unsubstantiated threat reported at PMS April 26. The previous incident was reported as a rumor that a student had threatened to bring a weapon to school that day.

“Please speak with your Oriole to help us ensure that they understand the serious nature of any type of threatening behavior,” Reed’s message concluded.
