NCSD concludes Park Elementary situation investigation; Law enforcement shared no reports with the principal

(Natrona County, Wyo.) -Natrona County School District’s investigation regarding a recent situation involving an alleged miscreant in the vicinity of Park Elementary School has been concluded. Reports indicating that a Park Elementary School administrator was notified by local law enforcement of a possible threat to students near the school were found to be unsubstantiated. Local law enforcement did not receive a specific report or have any knowledge of a direct threat to students and staff at Park Elementary. Local law enforcement did not specifically inform Principal Dawn Dewald of an impending safety risk to students, as there was no such information to report. With the full cooperation and assistance of local law enforcement, the investigation has been concluded. NCSD’s primary goal is student and staff safety. A gap analysis is on-going to assess whether NCSD Board Policies, Administrative Regulations and procedures are in place to meet this goal. This includes collaborating with local law enforcement relating to mutual efforts to keep students and staff safe. As updates to communication procedures, education regarding student safety, and efforts with local law enforcement are developed, NCSD will share this information with all stakeholders. NCSD’s dedication to the safety of students and staff will remain our primary focus. #oilcity #news
