Dear Parents/Guardians:

Please be aware that there are currently SCPD units at JGHS. Initially, the officers arrived to make administration aware of a non-credible threat that was quickly circulating throughout Long Island, being falsely attributed to local districts (not Elwood specifically). The threat has since been traced by to a H.S. in Forest Hills, Queens and an arrest has been made. SCPD however remained at JGHS to take information brought forward by a student who had expressed concern about the safety of a fellow student (who was not in attendance). At no time was any threat made against John Glenn H.S. or any Elwood building.

Please also know that the SCPD will be on campus at Boyd Intermediate later today to assist in a regularly scheduled lock down drill.

I understand in this time of heightened awareness that the presence of SCPD officers may have brought about anxiety or fear. Please know that all students, faculty and staff are safe and continue to have a productive Friday.

Enjoy your weekend.

Kenneth R. Bossert, Ed.D.
