The text of a statement we received from the Tipp City Schools:


This afternoon a Tippecanoe Middle School student made threatening written comments regarding intent to harm two adults within the building.   In addition, there was mention to cause destruction to the building.

School administrators immediately notified Tipp City Police. They continue to investigate. The student now faces three misdemeanors including aggravated menacing and disorderly conduct.

The Tipp City Police Department does not deem the student to be an immediate threat to students, staff, or the community. There were no injuries.  

The safety of our students and staff is a top priority for Tipp City Schools. The district emphasizes the police are confident there is no additional threat of harm from this incident. The student will remain out of school during the investigation.

Tipp City Schools greatly values its partnership with local law enforcement.
