UPDATE – District 186 Issues Statement On Yesterdays Alleged Gun Situation At Lanphier

Yesterday we brought to you Two Students Allegedly Brought Guns To Lanphier High School Today, Intending To “Shootin Da School Up”

Today District 186 has issued the following statement.

Lanphier High School took immediate action yesterday to ensure student safety, and we would like to dispel rumors that have since followed.

On Thursday morning, two students exchanged inappropriate text messages that other students became concerned about. Those students alerted teachers and administration and we acted immediately, calling in law enforcement to assist us in questioning and searching the belongings of the involved students. Nothing was found and we quickly determined before lunch that there was no credible threat and that students were safe. Rumors that students had weapons are completely false.

As always, student safety is our top priority, and we take these matters very seriously. We understand that these kind of rumors are troubling, but want to assure you we addressed this matter quickly and decisively. Law enforcement has taken appropriate action and we will follow our disciplinary processes as usual.

Students were safe in the building yesterday, and teaching and learning carried on as usual. We will continue to have another safe and productive day at Lanphier High School today.

If you have additional concerns, please call the school at 525-3080.

Take a listen to the below automated call that was issued this morning.

  1. Parents should have been notified as soon as this happened ! Had an issue where my 5yr old left school (he was making his transition from elc to kindergarten ) n walked to his grandmas – I wasn’t informed until I called my mother to see if she could pick up my oldest at the same school bcuz she was sick and she answered saying “I got him” i in return answered with “u have who?” so basically I informed them of his leaving and while I was on the line with my mother the school had sent a car full of teachers to find him!!! Love the teachers but the ways they are trained to deal is not the correct way what so ever !!!!

  3. Seems like this site does nothing but “copy and paste”…nothing original or anything that can’t be seen somewhere else. I used to like this site, but anymore it just makes me laugh that they think they are a “news source”

    • If you don’t like this site, then why are you commenting on it? You hate this site, but keep coming here. You make me laugh.

      With all due respect, this site is how I found out about the issue at my son’s school. And I believe also bc of this site, that lanphier even called parents over 24 hours later.

  4. If Mr.Doss issued this statement it’s probably a cover up. Mr.Doss it extremely racist and from what I’ve heard the accused were African-Amerian. So he’s probably just trying to protect them. I’m going to believe ALL the students at the school. Rather than one man whos bias I’ve experienced first hand.

    The accused actually were NOT African American. And it doesn’t make sense that he would cover up to protect two while hundreds others lives were at stake. Ummm…nice try!

  6. Anonymous2 no it doesn’t make sense that he would protect 2 and put the safty of hundreds at risk however that’s exactly what he’s doing. He has a habit of putting the needs of the few over the needs of many.
