RASD Public Service Announcement: Safety Concern Update (9/9/2019)

We want to thank students, staff, and community members for being observant of concerning behaviors within the community and reporting those concerns to the authorities immediately.

As a result of your report, the Elk County District Attorney's Office, Borough and State Law Enforcement Agencies, and the Ridgway Area School District have been made aware of a safety concern that surfaced last week via social media (snap chat). The concern has been investigated by both law enforcement and the district.

Both agencies are carefully monitoring the situation and have put into place added measures of supervision to reinforce situational awareness and safety. At this time, it has been determined that there is no imminent threat toward the Ridgway Middle High School students or staff. We encourage you to read our press release for more information.
