WSMS SAFETY MESSAGE 9.28.19
Dear Walnut Springs Middle School Families:
The safety and security of our students is a top priority at our school. We are writing to make you aware of an incident that occurred at school yesterday and since has started to generate rumors.
In a moment of frustration, one of our students lost their composure and had an outburst that included reference to "shooting up the school.” Numerous students heard this and it has started to generate some chatter. Please know that this matter was immediately addressed and law enforcement determined there was no validity to the student's comments. Clearly this student’s choice of language during an outburst was inappropriate and, as a result, the student is facing appropriate disciplinary measures. More importantly, we are working with the family and student to connect them to various community resources and support mechanisms.
It is unfortunate that this incident occurred, but we simply wanted to reassure everyone that the matter has addressed. We look forward to seeing everyone at school on Monday. As always, if you have questions, please feel free to contact me at (614) 797-6700.
Dear Walnut Springs Families,
We are so very excited for all of you to be back with the Wolf Pack for the 2019-20 school year!
Please remember that all Back to School forms are online through the PowerSchool Parent Portal and need to be completed prior to schedule pick up. If you are in need of assistance, we will have computers available during schedule pick up and some translator services will be available also. Payment of school fees can be made on EZPay, check, cash, or money order. Finally, be on the look out in your mailbox for information from HR Imaging regarding school pictures during schedule pick up. All students, regardless of purchase, will have their picture taken for the yearbook and school id.
