On March 7, one of our high school students brought in candy to share. One of the students who had received the candy, began to redistribute and claim that the candy had been tampered with. This caused panic for the other students who had consumed the candy. Appropriate disciplinary and legal action will be taken against the student who caused anxiety and fear. We will not tolerate this type of behavior. An official report has been made by the Perry Township Police Department that can be viewed here. Again, the safety of our students is our top priority and we take any situation that affects their well-being very seriously.
