School Officials Say Graduation Night Safe and Secure Despite Threats of Violence

HERNANDO – Over the last few days RNRF has received numerous tips from concerned parents and students who were worried about possible threats of violence in and around our public schools. We kept close ties with the Hernando County School Board and Sheriff’s Office, who assured us that all threats were investigated and were unfounded.

Today, School Board officials asked us to share the following, in an effort to help ease concerns over rumors of violence during tonight’s graduation event at Springstead High School.

The following statement was provided by the Hernando County Schoool Board: “Good afternoon Springstead family – I wish to share that we have been made aware of a non-credible threat sent to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office and intended to disrupt our graduation ceremony.

I wish to assure all of our students and families that he Hernando County Sheriff’s Office and the Hernando County School District are working collaboratively to ensure a safe environment for tonight’s graduation.Sweeps have been made to the campus and arrangements for around-the-clock security as well as enhanced police presence during the ceremony have been made.

We also ask that duffel bags, backpacks or any large item be left in the vehicle or at home. They will not be permitted in the stadium.

We hope to see everyone for this special event and as a reminder the graduation ceremony starts at 7:30 p.m. at booster stadium. Gates open at 6:15 p.m.”

    • I’m not in law enforcement or from the school board. I would like to say why are such a hater? Put yourself in the shoes of the sheriff’s department. How hard would it be to protect people and yet maintain their rights. You can’t touch anyone, hell you can’t even look at someone without fear of being accosted or sued by people today. So shut your c&&k sucker. You are the type of person that if given a golden a$$hole you’d bitch because it wasn’t platinum.

  • Perhaps they should do pat downs on these gowned graduates. They may not have backpack, duffel bag and so on but lots can be hidden under gowns & caps. Metal detectors???

    • Real nice. Treat graduating students like criminals. Bet you voted for Donald Dump. If threat was made for graduation ceremony more than likely it was made by an upset student who either didnt graduate or was not allowed to attend ceremony as a discipline. Lets try some common sense, not ignorance and lack of intelligent thoughts like your hero hitler…i mean trump
