WASHINGTON, ILLINOIS August 28, 2019 PRESS RELEASE On August 27, 2019 a handwritten note containing threatening language was discovered near the main entrance to Beverly Manor School in Washington, Illinois. The note was written on a stationary note card in what appeared to be the handwriting of a student. Officials at District 50 Schools commenced an investigation and contacted the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office upon discovery of the note. After a brief investigation, school officials were able to identify the student responsible. The middle school student admitted writing the note and expressed remorse for the misconduct. While it appears that the student did not intend to carry out the threat, the district and law enforcement take all threats seriously. School disciplinary consequences will be imposed. The matter has also been referred to the Tazewell County States Attorney’s Office for juvenile proceedings. School officials urge parents to discuss with their children the importance of telling an adult right away if they hear or witness anyone make a threat toward the school or anyone at school. In addition, parents should reinforce the District message to their children that serious consequences from the school and law enforcement await anyone making such threats. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
