Today we received a credible threat that a student may bring a weapon to school tomorrow. The police were immediately notified. We were not able to identify the student who wrote the note. As a result, police will be at the school tomorrow, along with numerous Colonial School District Officials, to conduct a property search of every student entering George Read Middle School to ensure the safety of our students. Searches will be conducted for an indefinite period of time, as safety is our number one priority. If you choose to keep your child at home tomorrow, it will be an excused absence.
George Read Middle School is a part of the Colonial School District in New Castle, Delaware. The school houses grades 6 through 8.
