Lee County releases statement on school safety concerns.
“Numerous posts on social media sites today have been in regard to concerns about possible safety issues at schools in the Beulah community. Lee County SRO deputies have been involved in working with the schools, parents, and students to determine if any of the concerns are supported by credible evidence. At this time, no evidence to indicate a clear and present threat to safety has been discovered. What has been evident is that the concerns have been fueled by numerous rumors without any basis in fact. Everyone’s primary concern is the safety of their children and we share that concern. If anything or anyone poses a possible threat to any school we will intervene immediately to confront the source of the potential harm and make sure that the facts, not rumors, are provided to the public. Our efforts are in partnership with the Lee County School administrators and the faculty and staff of all our county schools. We are committed to ensure a safe environment for our children.”
