Sept. 30: Social Media Concern Being Investigated

Parents/Caregivers & Staff:

I want to let you know that we have been asked by local law enforcement to share with you that they have been investigating throughout the night a threat posted through social media against an unidentified school. As of this time, the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office and the Martinsburg City Police cannot confirm that the threat is local or against a Berkeley County school. It is important to us that you know that law enforcement is aware of this post and is actively investigating it. If we receive any additional information, we will pass it along to you.


Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work with our law enforcement partners to guard the health and safety of our students and staff.
