Mexico Middle School students are safe after a student made a threatening comment regarding the students of the school.
In a letter to parents, Mexico Superintendent, Dr. Zach Templeton, said school administrators and Mexico Public Safety investigated the incident, and do not believe that any students were in danger. He continues by saying the school district takes all threats seriously and investigate all incidents that could in any way create an unsafe environment at the schools.
Major Brice Mesko with Mexico Public Safety said the male student was detained in relation to the incident. He said the student was in an argument with another student when he made a comment that was perceived as threatening, and witnessing students immediately reported what was said.
Mesko said a case is being sent to the Juvenile Court, and he has no information on a disciplinary action the school will take.
