Connect 5 Outreach February 9, 2022

Good afternoon.


This is Mr. Quigg, Principal of Aberdeen High School, reaching out with an important message. 


To keep you informed of situations that occur at our school, I am reaching out to inform you that a general threat of gun violence was called into our school, through our main office phone lines. Our school was immediately put on lockdown, meaning no one is allowed in or out of the building. Aberdeen Police Department was immediately notified, and an investigation was initiated with the assistance of the school administration. 


At the conclusion of the investigation, we found no valid or supporting evidence that the threat was credible. All appropriate actions were taken immediately, as the safety of our students and staff remains our utmost priority. 


Please take this opportunity to talk with your student about the seriousness and resulting consequences of making threats of any kind, in a joking manner or otherwise.


If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at school. 


Thank you for your time and attention.
