MISD Encourages Parents to Talk to Their Children about the Consequences of Making or Spreading Rumors of School Threats

Press Release|

Thursday, September 1, 2022

Dear McKinney ISD Parents,

School districts in North Texas and across the United States are seeing a rise in the number of students spreading rumors of possible threats against schools. McKinney ISD and the McKinney Police Department investigate all reports of possible threats to our schools, and it is important to communicate to our students that every report of a threat is taken seriously. Several McKinney ISD students have been arrested this year for making threatening statements, claiming they were a hoax or made in jest.

What some students fail to realize is that there are significant consequences associated with creating or promoting rumors of a threat. If a student receives information about a school-related threat, they should report it immediately to McKinney ISD staff and the McKinney Police Department. Tips can also be sent to authorities through the Tip411 program.

Students should be reminded that creating a rumor or hoax of school violence can lead to significant disciplinary consequences and criminal charges. Please talk to your child about the severity of these statements. Please also talk with your child about the difference between reporting information to the appropriate school or law enforcement authorities versus creating and/or spreading rumors online or among his/her peers. This is particularly relevant to our secondary students as social media has compounded the frequency of these types of issues.

We believe that parents can determine the most appropriate way to approach this conversation with your child, depending upon his/her age and level of maturity. Student safety is our number one priority, and we appreciate your partnership in this effort.

Sincerely,

McKinney ISD

Estimados padres de McKinney ISD,

Los distritos escolares en el norte de Texas y en todo Estados Unidos están viendo un aumento en el número de estudiantes propagando rumores de posibles amenazas contra escuelas. McKinney ISD y el Departamento de Policía de McKinney investigan todos los informes de posibles amenazas a nuestras escuelas, y es importante comunicarles a nuestros estudiantes que todos los informes de amenazas se toman en serio. Varios estudiantes de McKinney ISD han sido arrestados este año por hacer declaraciones amenazantes, alegando que eran un engaño o una broma.

Lo que algunos estudiantes no se dan cuenta es que existen consecuencias significativas asociadas con la creación o promoción de rumores de una amenaza. Si un estudiante recibe información sobre una amenaza relacionada con la escuela, debe reportarlo de inmediato al personal de McKinney ISD y al Departamento de Policía de McKinney. La información también se puede enviar a las autoridades a través del programa Tip411.

Se debe recordar a los estudiantes que la creación de un rumor o engaño de violencia escolar puede tener consecuencias disciplinarias importantes e incluso cargos penales. Por favor hable con su hijo sobre la gravedad de estas declaraciones. Tambien hable por favor con su hijo sobre la diferencia entre reportar información al personal escolar apropiado o las autoridades policiales versus crear y / o difundir rumores en línea o entre sus compañeros. Esto es particularmente relevante para nuestros estudiantes de secundaria, ya que las redes sociales han agregado a la frecuencia de este tipo de problemas.

Creemos que los padres pueden determinar la forma más adecuada de abordar esta conversación con su hijo, dependiendo de su edad y nivel de madurez. La seguridad de los estudiantes es nuestra prioridad número uno y agradecemos su colaboración en este esfuerzo.

Sinceramente,

McKinney ISD
