Threat Assessment Protocol:
A threat is a communication of intent to harm someone that may be spoken, written, gestured, or expressed in some other form, such as via text messaging, email, or other digital means. An expression of intent to harm someone is considered a threat regardless of whether it is communicated to the intended target(s) and regardless of whether the intended target is aware of the threat. Threats may be implied by behavior that an observer would reasonably regard as threatening, planning, or preparing to commit a violent act. Please click here to see our Threat Assessment & Protocols (PDF).
In the event of a non-critical situation, you should feel free to contact Oak Grove school social workers and/or psychologists.
