SOCIAL MEDIA THREAT AT SUMMIT MIDDLE SCHOOL
SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – On September 20, 2019, at approximately 7:45 a.m. the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a threatening social media post that had been brought to the Principal’s attention by two students at Summit Middle School in Frisco.
Sheriff’s Deputies, Summit School District Officials and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are working in collaboration to determine the origination of the social media post. This threat remains under active investigation by the Sheriff’s Office and Federal law enforcement partners. The Sheriff’s Office has taken appropriate security measures and will have an increased law enforcement presence at Summit Middle School throughout the day.
Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons stated, “The Summit County Sheriff’s Office takes all threats to the community seriously. At this time, we have no reason to believe that there is a security or safety risk to students, staff or facilities. I encourage families to continue to talk with their children about safety and the importance about reporting any concerns promptly to parents, school officials, law enforcement or Safe2Tell Colorado.” Sheriff FitzSimons believes that community safety comes from communication, vigilance and education and that we all share in the responsibility to be part of the solution.
