Webster Middle School ‘Not At Risk’ After Online Threat


Webster Middle School

THE LAKE 940 has learned a letter was sent home to parents of Webster Middle School students on Friday, March 9th to alert them of a situation that might have compromised security within the school.

The letter referred to reports of an alleged social media post where “threatening comments” were made about the Webster Middle School and a staff member.  THE LAKE 940 reached out directly to Superintendent Ruthann Petruno-Goguen, who told us “After conducting an investigation the Webster Police and School Administrators determined the school was not at risk.”

Ms. Goguen would like to remind all students of the importance of saying something when you see something that is not right.

Superintendent Goguen tells us, she and the school department take, “all safety issues very seriously.”  Especially, in the weeks after the Parkland, Florida school shootings, “the Webster Public Schools continues to be diligent about safety preparedness, working with local officials and increasing the ways for students to use their voices in positive ways.”

To honor the victims of the Parkland tragedy, Webster Public Schools are initiating a district wide movement focused on spreading kindness that will begin on March 14th.  We will bring you more information on this program in the next few days.
