Social Media Threat (Friday, December 10th)

Dear Bryant Community, 

As part of our ongoing effort to keep an open line of communication with our parents, I would like to take a moment to share information with you regarding comments made on social media that are affecting our community. 

Early this morning we were made aware of a random comment on social media threatening school violence. The comment did not mention our school but Bryant students and parents were made aware of the comment and shared with others. 

At this time law enforcement authorities have no reason to believe this comment, like so many other comments being made on social media over the past week, is a real threat to the safety of our school.  However, we must, and we do, take these comments seriously.   

Upon being made aware of this comment, we immediately contacted Dearborn Police and they have launched an investigation to determine the source of the comment. Their expert team of detectives and cyber security experts have had great success in identifying the source and individuals responsible for making these types of comments.  We  are confident they will be able to do the same in regards to this latest comment.  

Bryant will be open Friday, December 10th. Out of an abundance of caution, we will have several resources at our disposal to ensure a safe and productive school day.  School Resource Officers, additional district staff, and other resources from the Dearborn Police will be at Bryant. Their presence is meant to bring an added sense of security to our students and staff. 

I want to commend those who have taken the time to report these types of comments directly to law enforcement or school authorities. Sharing information and communicating is the best way for all of us to stay informed and safe.  At the same time it is important for all of us to talk with our children and remind them of the dangers and serious consequences they may face if they decide to post comments on social media that insight fear or disrupt the operation of our school. I know that all of us, working together, can create the very best learning environment for all students.
