Questions have arisen over rumors of an alleged threat made at McCulloch on Friday, Feb. 22. Administrators investigated immediately, and the allegation was found to be untrue. Based on this investigation we believe there is no threat to the safety of the students at McCulloch today. As is true every school day, we have a school security officer in the building. At no time did we believe students and staff were in danger. We are committed to a safe and healthy learning environment and would not bring students or staff into a situation we believed to be unsafe.
