Charges filed after threat made by student against Tippah school, principal commended for handling

A threat was made by a student to a Walnut Attendance Center teacher on Thursday causing charges to be filed but no students nor the school were ever in danger according to the North Tippah School district.

According to the District:

“A statement was made to a teacher threatening to blow the school up. The teacher immediately reported to the administration who notified the authorities. It was determined that the school nor any students were in any danger.

However, the student made a statement that we must always take serious. Charges were filed and the student will not be allowed to return to school until a risk assessment is administered. If the student is allowed to return, the student will face further disciplinary action.

The Mississippi FBI commended WAC principal Trey Rolison and SRO Mike Anglin for the way they handled the matter.”
