10-02 Outback Observation

Last week Lakeview, and much of Lake County, was abuzz with speculation and rumor running rampant following threats made via social media towards students at Lakeview High School.

I believe school administrators acted appropriately in canceling school for three days while investigations into the validity of the threats and those responsible were pursued. Certainly losing instruction time left parents scrambling to find alternative plans for kids, faculty left wondering when to return to work, and how that lost instruction time may be restored during the school year; but it was a small price to pay for piece of mind. First and foremost is the safety of staff and students.
