February 28, 2018 – Junction City Middle School

Geary County Schools USD 475 has assessed the credibility of a potential threat or comment by a student of the aforementioned school. Threat assessments are used by building and district staff to investigate the credibility of a potential threat of harm, violence, disturbance, or other emerging situation in USD 475.

The result of this assessment was that two separate comments by two separate students were deemed inappropriate in nature. This matter has been forwarded to the Junction City Police Department SRO for review and potential investigation. No action, other than disciplinary action, was required as a result.

Geary County Schools holds the safety and security of our students and staff with high regard and remains devoted to maintaining a secure learning environment. Had this assessment revealed that the potential threat was credible and imminent, USD 475 would have notified parents and staff in a timely manner through the use of email, mobile app notification, or text message.
