A student being investigated for an alleged online threat will not be allowed to attend school in Warrick County.
The announcement was made on Monday during freshman orientation that the student in question would not be attending school on Wednesday came as a relief to some parents who had considered keeping their kids home from school.
"I was not going to send my child to school," said Tara Janiga.
Castle High parent Tara Janiga found out about the alleged threat and the possible disciplinary action through social media.
"I've always taken it seriously because of all the shootings and there is no way you shouldn't take it seriously. If somebody says something like that it's a threat," Janiga said. "Regardless whether they were kidding or not, if they say they are going to do something that serious, it needs to be taken seriously."
The Warrick County School Corporation is taking the threat seriously. Superintendent Brad Schneider is working with Warrick County Deputies to make sure students and parents feel safe.
"We will have an extra law enforcement presence. Other safety measures have been put in place, not just at Castle High School, but all 17 Warrick County schools," Schneider said.
"That's kind of scary. I wouldn't want to school with a kid like that," said Warrick County student Keeley Wade.
Schneider says this the first threat of this kind for the district, and it is a first for many parents too.
"When I was a kid, I went to Castle and the only thing you had to worry about was maybe getting into a fight with one of the other girls or whatever. 15 years later, I have a junior and you have to worry about a child coming in and shooting up the school. I have a newborn and worry about what it's going to be like for him when he gets to high school," Janiga said.
Schneider says not only will precautions be in place on the first day of school but all school days.
"We understand that without safe schools, we can't have schools that achieve at a high level. Plus, they are our kids," Schneider said.
Schneider says until that issue is resolved, he may not be able to attend any Warrick County School.
EVSC says as long as the investigation is still pending, the student won't be able to attend one of their schools either.
