Final Threat Update

As the investigation concludes in this morning's threat, we wanted to provide an update regarding the nature of the threat and the action taken.  A note was discovered containing a possible bomb threat and reference to a weapon.  Upon notification to the State Police, our high school administration and school police officer quickly identified the suspect and confirmed there was no imminent danger to our students, faculty, and staff.  Given the information that we had and no immediate threat, a lock-in was issued for both the middle and high school for the purpose of isolating the area and keeping our students and staff safe.  As a secondary precaution, a bomb dog was brought in to conduct a sweep.  Other details of the investigation cannot be released due to criminal charges that are pending, and we do not want to jeopardize the criminal process.  Throughout the investigation, the State Police provided direction for us to release information and actions to take, including the staggered lifting of the lock-in.  We wanted to keep our Warrior Run Community updated as best as possible and to assure that our students, faculty, and staff were safe at all times.   

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these complex situations.   

Important Update

As you know the State Police have been handling the situation here at Warrior Run.  A suspect has been identified, and the investigation continues.  While there was no imminent danger, the bomb dog has been brought in as a secondary precautionary measure for the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff.  A final message will be sent out once the State Police have completed the sweep which should be expected within the hour.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we release information and address concerns you may have for your child.


Lock-in Lifted - Middle School

The situation at the MS/HS Complex is under control thanks to the high school administration and law enforcement.  The lock-in at the middle school has been lifted, however, the high school will remain in lock-in for a brief period of time.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  


The Warrior Run Middle/High School is currently on lock-in for a possible threat.  Law enforcement is currently on site working on the situation. At this time, however, we believe there is no imminent danger.  Please refrain from calling the the school or coming to the school at this time. More information will be shared as it become available.  Please all WRSD staff and law enforcement to do the work that needs to be done that leads to the best possible outcome.

Safety Drills Safety Drills

Dear Parents/Guardians & Faculty/Staff:

As part of our commitment to safety and security preparedness at Warrior Run, we will be conducting a safety drill in each school later this week.  Act 44 now requires school districts to conduct a safety drill within the first 90 days of school.  This is not a new practice for Warrior Run, as our District annually conducts a number of safety drills throughout the year to ensure our students and faculty know how to respond in the event that an intruder would enter our building.  

As you may know, all of our faculty and staff were trained in the ALICE protocol prior to the start of this school year.  ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate.  Please visit the ALICE training website to learn more https://www.alicetraining.com.  We will be implementing this protocol as we conduct our drills in the coming months.

The safety drill will occur at Turbotville Elementary School tomorrow, October 17th and in our Middle/High School Complex on Friday, October 19th.  

We continually strive to provide a safe and secure learning environment for all students and staff in our school buildings.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding these drills, please feel free to contact your respective building administrator.

Comprehensive Planning is a web-based framework for thoughtful data-driven and research-based district and school planning. Comprehensive Planning facilitates communication and collaboration, promotes shared practices and resources, and ensures that every stakeholder is working toward common goals. Additionally, Comprehensive Planning assists local education agencies (school districts, charter schools, area vocational technical schools/career and technical centers, and intermediate units) to create and manage a continuous, comprehensive plan to submit to the Department in order to maintain compliance with state and federal mandate.  For more information on PDE's Comprehensive Plan process, click here.

The attached document is the comprehensive plan draft for Warrior Run School District for 2019-2022 and is available for 28 days for public review.  If you have questions or comments, please contact Theresa Bartholomew, Director of Educational Programs, by phone at 570-649-5138 ext 5002 or by email at tbartholomew@wrsd.org.
