• L&T staff report

After a student at Eisenhower Middle School reported a social media threat to school officials Monday, claiming that an event might be planned for today, district officials involved law enforcement to address the threat.

According to a district release, the threat came via a Snapchat post.

The district issued a release Tuesday, stating, “There will be an increased presence of law enforcement in and around our schools on Wednesday. Our first priority is always student safety, and we will continue to work in partnership with our local authorities to ensure that. All parties responded quickly, and we are confident in our plans moving forward to address student, staff and parent concerns.”

With the rise in social media, these types of threats have also increased.

“While every student at our middle schools and high school receive cyber-safety education, it does remind us of the importance for us as parents and educators to talk to our students about the significance of their ‘posts,’” the district release stated.

Anyone with information regarding the threat is encouraged to contact the Liberal Police Department at 626-0141.
