This is an update on the incident that occurred at Henderson Middle School this afternoon. Public safety officials received a call indicating that a person was on campus with a weapon. It was determined that the call was placed using a cell phone from inside the school; however, no evidence has presented itself that would indicate the report was credible or accurate. Law enforcement officials completed a sweep of the campus at Henderson Middle School and have assured us that the campus is safe to proceed with normal operations. Law enforcement and school officials will continue to investigate this matter in order to determine the appropriate next steps. Students will be dismissed today at the regularly scheduled time. All afterschool activities will go on as scheduled.
