SOCIAL MEDIA WARNING
The George County School District has been informed of
social media posts that mention possible threats to George County School
District Schools. We are actively
investigating all possible scenarios through our own police force and with the
cooperation of local law enforcement.
Additional precautions are being taken to ensure the safety of all
students and staff on all campuses. We
will have additional uniformed officers on all campuses.
Unfortunately, social media posts which cannot be verified
are causing miscommunication and heightened anxiety among students and
parents. We appreciate your cooperation
in NOT posting comments or sharing information that cannot be confirmed. If you have information about possible
threats, or information pertinent to the safely of our schools, please contact
George County School District Office at 601-947-6993, the Lucedale Police
Department or the George County Sheriff’s Office.
We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any
individual found to be posting threats to our school district. Responsible parties will be held accountable for
any statements posted on social media that are found to be fabricated and that result in negative
effects on school safety or culture. We
ask that you please help us in combating social media issues which negatively affect
our school culture.
As always, the protection, safety and security of all
students and staff is our top priority.
