Robo-call for School Issue

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - Robo-call scheduled to be sent at 6pm 
Message sent to:  GHS Parents and Staff

There was a situation that took place in the City of Geneva in mid April.  This situation involved a juvenile stealing items from a vehicle which included a firearm.  The situation was uncovered when an Instagram post was sent recently.  Geneva High School cooperated with the Geneva Police Department today in the recovery of the firearm.  The firearm was never on school property.  At no point was Geneva High School under any threat.  Geneva High School simply assisted the police in their investigation.  We wanted our parents to be aware since the information was on social media and some students may have had knowledge.  Thank you!

Attention Geneva Middle School Parents:  I am making you aware of an issue that occurred today at GMS.  
A single, live round of 9mm ammunition was found stuck to the bottom of a desk using a piece of gum.  It was found in one of the GMS classrooms.  

The Geneva Police Department was contacted, maintained a presence at the school and investigated.  All students in and around that classroom were questioned and some belongings were searched.  Nothing additional was found in the searches. We do not believe there is a threat and the GMS Staff and GPD will continue to monitor the building throughout the remainder of the day.  

Any updated information along with this message will be placed on the home page of the district website for your information. Thank you! 
**************UPDATE****** for situation above*****************
4/12/19 - After further investigation, the responsible student was found.  The single round of ammunition was found by the student, brought to school, shown to other students and then hidden.  The school administration and GPD will follow procedures in dealing with the incident.  We wanted to emphasize again, that this was an isolated incident and there were no other items discovered during the searches.  Thank you!
