Superintendent Letter: 1/8/23Dear Oswego City School District Parents and/or Guardians,
I am writing to share that earlier today the district became aware of a post that was circulating on social media. The post had a picture of a Charles E. Riley student and a BB gun.
After being notified of the post, district officials contacted local police who immediately began to investigate this concern. While doing so, police determined that there was no threat made to students and/or staff, and that there was no danger to the health or safety of our OCSD community.
Student and staff safety are the district’s top priority. Through our partnership with local law enforcement and in accordance with district protocol, we will have local police on hand tomorrow morning at Charles E. Riley to welcome students and parents.
We would like to thank the Oswego Police Department for their partnership and quick response to this matter.
Should any parent or guardian have a question about this concern, we ask that you reach our directly to your child’s principal.
As always, we encourage our community to report any concerns that involve a threat to district officials, local police or our anonymous hotline at 315-341-2056.
Dr. Mathis Calvin III
Superintendent of Schools
