Rumors were circulating on social media outlets Friday morning regarding a “disagreement” involving two Millard South High School students, neither of whom was in school.
School officials and Omaha police have investigated the matter, district spokeswoman Rebecca Kleeman said, and “nothing of substance has been found to any threat.”
“The social media involved with this is really ugly,” Kleeman said. “It's just kids typing whatever comes to mind.”
Kleeman said the district had sent an email to Millard South parents and guardians regarding the situation. The email, signed by Curtis Case, the school principal, noted that school officials were working with the two students, their families and authorities and that the officials were “taking appropriate disciplinary actions.”
“We are also very aware of the conversation on social media,” Case wrote. "We are in the process of contacting each student who has contributed to these comments and speaking with both them and their families. We have found that students often add to social media threads without thoughts of the consequences of their words, so we feel this is a very important conversation for us to have.”
