Dear Lawrence County CUSD #20 Parents and Guardians,
This letter is to inform you about an incident that occurred at Lawrenceville High School Wednesday afternoon that was reported to the high school administration. Because our school is committed to the safety and education of all our students, we want to clearly communicate with parents about safety issues when they arise.
The incident was investigated by the school administration by interviewing students and examining social media posts. Appropriate actions to ensure the safety of our students were taken by the school following the investigation. Due to confidentiality reasons, specific details can not be released regarding student discipline.
I would like to thank the Lawrenceville City Police Department as well as the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in the investigation and presence at the school.
All potentially dangerous situations regarding our students or school safety are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. The district wants you to have the facts so you can discuss this situation with your child(ren) so that everyone feels confident that the district is taking this situation seriously.
Doug Daugherty, Superintendent
Lawrence County CUSD #20
