Non-credible Threat Reported

On Sunday, May 19, Kent School District School Safety Services was informed of a vague social media threat directed toward Meridian Middle School. Our School Safety Services staff worked in cooperation with the local law enforcement to investigate the threat and the individual who made it.

The incident was thoroughly investigated and determined a non-credible threat. Meridian Middle School is open today operating on its regular schedule. As an added measure of precaution, there are additional safety officers onsite today.

The safety of our students and staff is our first priority in any situation. We thank all who reported this incident and are grateful for local law enforcement who communicated with us and worked to ensure all of our students and staff are safe.
