Dear Nashwauk-Keewatin families and community, This statement is in response to a student report of concern for the safety of our schools. Threats were first overheard on a school bus, and then posted on social media. We are proud that our students did a good job of reporting concerns about safety to our administration. Administration immediately reached out to local law enforcement who responded quickly to our concerns. There are no credible or authentic threats to the safety of our schools. Disciplinary action has been taken where it is justified. Again, thank you for your alertness. If appropriate, please reinforce with your children the importance of "when you see something, say something." With your support, we continue to act for the safety of all our students and staff. We are NK strong!

Dear parents, We are deeply saddened to hear of another school shooting. The safety of our students and staff is very important to us. Our schools are safe and our communities are strong. If you are searching for resources about how to talk to your child(ren) about school violence, in addition to consulting our school counselors, here is one thoughtful resource from the National Association of School Psychologists: http://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources/school-safety-and-crisis/talking-to-children-about-violence-tips-for-parents-and-teachers
