Statement from Wabash District #348 Superintendent Tim Buss:
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
I am writing to put to rest some rumors that have surfaced in the community regarding a possible threat of violence at the high school. The first thing we did when we heard about the possible threat was to contact the Mount Carmel Police Department and they responded immediately and conducted a thorough investigation along with MCHS Administration. We have been assured by law enforcement that there was no credible threat. There were no lists and social media has exploded with false information.
Nevertheless, student and staff safety is our top priority and we will continue to closely monitor this and any situation that might arise. I want to thank the Mount Carmel Police Department and everyone that had a part in quickly resolving this situation. Thank you for your continued support of our students.
