Threats of Violence or Harm
By Washington state law and by Edmonds School District policy, the issuing of a threat against individuals or against district property will be taken seriously.
Individual-directed threats of violence or harm are communications that create fear of physical harm to a specific individual or individuals, communicated directly or indirectly by any means.
Building-directed threats of violence or harm are direct or indirect communications by any means of the intent to cause damage to a school building or school property or to harm students, employees, volunteers, patrons or visitors.
Staff, students, volunteers, and others involved in school activities have the responsibility to report any threats of violence or harm to designated school officials. Persons found to have made threats of violence or harm will be subject to relevant district discipline policies and will be referred to appropriate community agencies, including law enforcement and mental health services.
