“We are grateful that the parent took action and called the school. Most of all, we are proud of the young man who heard something and made sure an adult knew the information. Congratulations to our students for understanding the importance of telling an adult about any possible threat to the school.
“Please take a moment to discuss this issue with your child. These types of threats have no place in our school or community. The consequences for making such threats may be dire,” read the notice.
Lisa Tuttle-Huff, superintendent of Madison Schools, said she would not comment beyond the district’s public statement.
The Madison Schools’ K-12 campus was the site of a shooting in 2016 that saw a student injure four classmates.
In the wake of the shooting, the district is the first in Butler County and southwest Ohio to adopt a security program wherein some teachers and school staffers who volunteer - and are trained - are allowed access to handguns during the school day.
