This afternoon, we were made aware of an apparent "hit list" written by a Clarkston junior high school student. The list was discovered by another student and turned in to CJHS administrators. The district has contacted those who were named on the list and at no time were any students or staff in danger.
"The Oakland County Sheriff's Office was notified immediately and responded quickly. The student has been taken into custody and will not be back in our buildings pending an investigation.
"I realize this comes on the heels of another recent apparent threat by Clarkston Junior High School students and I want you to know we are looking at steps we can take as a district to address and prevent student threats of violence. I cannot stress enough that we, as a district, take such threats seriously, as does our local law enforcement."
