Dear Parents and Guardians:
As you are aware, a bomb threat was discovered at the High School today. We immediately notified state police and evacuated the building. State police worked with our school police officers to determine the threat was not credible.
The safety of our students and staff is a priority at Karns City Area School District. The district takes all threats very seriously and will implement all appropriate disciplinary action under our student code of conduct and the Pennsylvania State Law.
If you see or hear any disturbing statement involving our schools or our students, please immediately report it to local law enforcement and the school district.
At Karns City Area School District, we have five school police officers, all of whom are retired state police officers, working in our schools. In addition, we have many other safety measures in place and will continue to strive to improve school safety in our district. If you ever have questions or concerns about school safety, please contact your child's principal.
