Message from the Superintendent

Good Afternoon, Russell Family.


I wanted to make you aware of a situation that occurred with a student at Russell High School using a social media platform on the afternoon of January 5, 2018.  Russell High School Administration and the School Resource Officer were notified of this incident and the student was immediately detained.

This situation is currently under investigation by law enforcement. Because of the investigation, no additional details will be shared. Any time a threat or potential threat is brought to the attention of administration or law enforcement it will be taken seriously and immediately addressed.

We will continue to be diligent and provide a safe learning environment for students and staff.
