MEDIA RELEASE: Update Regarding Threat Making Behavior at Alix MAC

Situation Contained at Alix MAC School Re: Threat Making Behavior

This letter is being distributed to parents/guardians to ensure there is clarity regarding a recent incident at Alix-MAC School.

During the afternoon of December 22, 2017, information came to Alix-MAC administration with a Snapchat post. In the post a veiled threat was made to the school. As per Wolf Creek’s Administrative Procedure 106 (Protocol for Schools Dealing with Threat and Risk Assessment) the school enacted the safety and security protocol. This included immediately contacting the Bashaw Police Service to share information.

The threat was assessed and classified as “worrisome” meaning there was not an imminent danger to the safety and security of students and staff. Precautions were taken immediately including a ‘Hold and Secure’ which means all doors to the school were locked. Police were immediately contacted and attended to the school. Wolf Creek takes all threats very seriously by following a zero tolerance policy for not responding to threat-making or threat-related behaviors.

One Alix-MAC student was involved. The student who made the threat has been formally dealt with by the Bashaw RCMP.

The safety and security of Alix-MAC students and staff remains of the highest priority.
