Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our first priority is the safety of our students and staff. This morning the parent of one of our students reported to us that a threat of violence had been made against Gordon Russell Middle School on social media.
Administration immediately reported this threat to the Gresham Police Department and they are conducting an investigation.
Please inform your child about the consequences of what they say and do. To maintain a safe school environment, it is important to keep the lines of communication open. The student who reported the threat to their parent did the right thing and is to be commended. If you hear of threats directed toward a school, its students, or its staff, please let us know immediately.
Working together, we can provide a safe and nurturing environment for all the students at Gordon Russell Middle School. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at 503-667-6900.
