Families and students at Fern Ridge Middle School,

We want to let you know of a concerning event that occurred at our school today and the actions we have taken so far to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and community.

This afternoon, Fern Ridge Middle School staff were made aware of a note found in a school restroom indicating that someone heard someone else say they were going to shoot up the school.   The Lane County Sheriff’s Office was contacted and we have cooperated with their investigation.

It has been determined that a student wrote the note after reportedly hearing part of a conversation, mainly the words “school” and “shooting”, which alarmed the student.

Investigation by the Sheriff’s Office has not found any evidence indicating a real threat.  As always, we encourage students, families, and the community to report any information they have about this incident, or any school threat, to school staff so we can make local law enforcement aware.

Out of an abundance of caution, deputies may be present at the school tomorrow.
