Important Message re: Snapchat incident

Posted on: November 18, 2018

Sunday - November 18, 2018

Student safety is our top priority in the Wilmington City School district.  For this reason, we are communicating this message tonight to inform you of an event that was investigated this afternoon.  

On Sunday afternoon, a former WCS parent contacted a teacher to let her know that her son received a Snapchat message with a screenshot of a threatening message.  

The district notified the Wilmington PD and the PD determined that the photo was traced outside the Wilmington School district, and at this time we do not have any reason to believe this student is affiliated with our school district or community.  The student who originally shared this message did not know the individual in the photo.

Since safety is our top priority, the district has requested additional police presence on campus tomorrow.
