December 16, 2015 Press Release-Spanish Translation

Miércoles, 16 de diciembre de 2015

Comunicado de prensa de la Corporación Escolar de Goshen: El 15 de diciembre, aproximadamente a las 11 a.m., un padre llamó a la preparatoria Goshen High School para notificar a los directores de una amenaza que estaba publicada en Facebook. En cuestión de minutos de recibir la llamada, el alumno que supuestamente envió el comentario fue llevado a la oficina principal para que la situación fuera manejada, y se tomaron las medidas disciplinarias apropiadas. El alumno admitió que las amenazas no eran enserio, pero que pensó que sería divertido hacer el comentario en Facebook. La situación se reportó inmediatamente a la policía local. El personal de Goshen High School continuará trabajando con las autoridades con respecto a esta situación.  En la Corporación Escolar de Goshen sigue siendo una prioridad el lidiar con todos los problemas de seguridad a medida que continuamos luchando por la excelencia en todo lo que sucede en nuestras escuelas.

Comunicado de Prensa del Departamento de Policía: El oficial de recursos escolares del departamento de policía de Goshen que está asignado a la escuela preparatoria de Goshen High School fue notificado por uno de los subdirectores acerca de un incidente que involucraba a un alumno haciendo amenazas con un arma de fuego por medio de un mensaje de texto a otro alumno. Las amenazas estaban dirigidas a toda la escuela, sugiriendo que el sospechoso iba a lastimar a muchos con un arma de fuego, no sólo al que estaba recibiendo el mensaje de texto. El oficial de policía Johnson se reunió con el personal de la escuela a donde el sospechoso fue escoltado. El oficial Johnson esculcó al sospechoso, sus pertenencias y su casillero. No se le encontró ninguna arma. Dada la severidad de la amenaza y el historial del sospechoso, se hicieron arreglos en conjunto con el personal de Elkhart County Juvenile Detention para detener al sospechoso hasta que tenga su audiencia de emergencia en la corte Juvenil, el jueves, 17 de diciembre. El sospechoso, menor de edad, fue arrestado con cargos de intimidación y actualmente está detenido en la correccional de menores. Todas las medidas fueron tomadas por los directores de la escuela y oficiales de policía para hacer frente a la amenaza del joven y potencialmente prevenir cualquier acción adicional o violencia por parte del sospechoso. La administración de la escuela ha suspendido al menor y está a la espera de tener una audiencia de expulsión con el estudiante. El sistema de la corte juvenil de menores escuchará el caso y determinará cualquier medida adicional que sea requerida.

Goshen Community Schools: ** La discrepancia entre los dos comunicados de prensa en relación con los mensajes de texto o el uso de Facebook se deben a la utilización de la mensajería de Facebook y mensajes de texto de Facebook capturas de pantalla. Los comunicados de prensa son sobre el mismo incidente, que fue reportado por Goshen High School, y se ha actuado por el Departamento de Policía de Goshen.

December 16, 2015 Press Release

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

 

Goshen Community Schools Press Release:

 

On December 15th, at approximately 11:00 a.m., a parent called GHS to notify the administration of a threat that he noticed on Facebook. Within minutes of receiving the call, the student who allegedly posted the comment was brought to the office and the situation was handled, and appropriate discipline steps were taken. The student admitted that he was not serious about the threat, but thought it would be funny to make the comment on Facebook. The situation was immediately reported to local law enforcement. GHS will continue to work with the authorities in regards to this situation.

At Goshen Community Schools, it continues to be a priority to deal immediately with all safety concerns as we continue to strive for excellence in all that happens in our schools.

 

Goshen Police Press Release:

 

The Goshen Police School Resource officer assigned to the Goshen High School was notified by the school’s Assistant Principal of an incident involving a student making threats with a firearm via text message to another student. The threats were directed toward the entire school and suggested that the suspect would bring about harm to many with a firearm, not just the recipient of the text message.

SRO Johnson joined school staff in the office to where the suspect was escorted. SRO Johnson searched the suspect, his belongings, and his locker. No weapon was located.

Due to the severity of the threat and the history of the suspect, arrangements were made in conjunction with Elkhart County Juvenile Detention staff to detain the suspect until his emergency hearing in Juvenile court, Thursday, December 17th. The juvenile suspect was arrested on charges of Intimidation and is currently being held in juvenile detention.

Every measure was taken by school administration and police officers to address the juvenile’s threat and potentially prevent any additional actions or violence by the suspect.

The school administration has suspended the juvenile pending his expulsion hearing. The Juvenile court system will hear the case and determine what further action may be required.

 

Goshen Community Schools:

**The discrepancy between the two press releases regarding texting or the use of Facebook are due to the use of Facebook messaging, and texting Facebook screen shots. The press releases are about the same incident, which was reported by Goshen High School, and has been acted upon by the Goshen Police Department.
