A potential threat at a local high school was thwarted thanks to a student.

A parent communication was sent out today by South Lyon Community Schools, stating administration is thankful for the quick action taken by a current student. It says the courageous student promptly informed local authorities of a potential threat regarding South Lyon High School this past weekend. The nature of the threat was not disclosed. Due to their swift actions, local authorities and administration were able to work collaboratively to investigate and prevent any issues.

Students should report to a trusted adult such as a parent, teacher, administrator, counselor, or police officer and let them determine the next steps. Things can also be reported anonymously through the Ok2Say option posted on the district website.

Officials say communicating all concerns quickly to an adult is essential when dealing with safety concerns and by working collaboratively; they will continue to provide a safe environment for the students in the community. (JM)
