Dear Manchester School District staff and families,
I am writing because a Memorial High School student was arrested yesterday for
making threats via social media related to school shootings. The Manchester School
District and the Manchester Police Department were made aware of those potential
threats and the Manchester Police Department took immediate action.
According to the information we received about the investigation, there was no
imminent threat to any of our students at Memorial or in the district. We are
working closely with the Manchester Police Department to ensure the safety of our
As a community, we need to be vigilant and work together to keep our students safe.
We urge you to talk with your children to encourage them to share anything they
hear or see that causes concern regarding their safety or that of others.
Dr. Bolgen Vargas
Superintendent of Schools
