Dear Families and Staff,
The district has been made aware of a TikTok challenge designed to encourage students to make violent threats against schools to take place on Friday, December 17th. The threats are non-specific, and there is no connection to RSU 1 or any schools in Maine.
The district has been in close communication with the Bath Police Department to determine there is no credible threat to RSU 1 schools. However, out of an abundance of caution, there will be an increased police presence in the district tomorrow.
We take these matters seriously and will continue to monitor the situation. As always, please notify our schools or the police if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
