March 8, 2018 – Fort Riley Middle School

Geary County Schools USD 475 has assessed the credibility of a possible threat by a student at 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. When appropriate, local law enforcement and community support will be consulted.

The result of this assessment was that a comment made by a student prior to March 1, 2018, (reported to Administration on March 8, 2018) was unfounded as it did not meet standards for crime or elevated concern.

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 USD 475 assessment revealed a cause for elevated concern or need for law enforcement action, USD 475 would have notified parents and staff in a timely manner through the use of email, mobile app notification, or text message.
