Dear Families and Community:
You may begin to hear or see social media posts or news releases in regard to a few schools in Blair County and Centre County. This certainly causes anxiety and concern. At this time the Huntingdon, Area School District DOES NOT have reports or concerns for safety of students or staff.
Unfortunately, actors out there target schools to cause confusion and worry. Potential risks or threats did happen in those neighboring counties and when that happens it is treated very seriously even if it is a hoax to avoid any issues. It is believed to be “swatting calls” that are made to schools claiming a threat.
At this time, we have No CONCERN for our safety. Out of an abundance of caution for our community, we will have an increased presence of safety measures in place today.
