Rumor at WMS is not a serious threat

Dear Wellington Community,
This morning, USD 353 administration intercepted a rumor about a potential
shooting that would occur at Wellington Middle School today. Our school is
committed to the safety and education of all our students and these types of
rumors are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. We also want to clearly
communicate with parents about safety concerns when they arise.
Local law enforcement investigated and found the origin of this rumor. It was
determined that it was an unsubstantiated threat. Additional police were also on
the scene as a precaution.
The district will follow all safety guidelines and protocols set forth in our policies
and will continue to monitor the situation. We wanted you to have the facts so
you can discuss them with your child and emphasize the seriousness of this
Please feel free to call Superintendent Adam Hatfield at 620-326-4300 or email
him at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you very much for your patience this morning as this situation was
