All schools in South Park School District switch to e-learning after Snapchat threat


All schools in the South Park School District will switch to online classes on Wednesday after Snapchat posted threats of gun violence to South Park Middle School.

The district initially announced on Tuesday night that the college would be turning to virtual learning, but then announced that all schools in the district – high school, middle school and elementary center – would hold their classes online.

“This will allow district staff to continue working with law enforcement on this active investigation,” the district said in a statement.

The school issued a statement saying the district is ready to make the transition:

Throughout the school year, our teachers have explored with students what a temporary transition to distance learning will look like in their classrooms. Students should log into Canvas for more information and links to live instructions, activities, and homework for the day.

Students are required to complete a virtual attendance form for their tenured professor. You will find links to all the forms by clicking on here.

Secondary students must complete the form no earlier than 7 a.m. and no later than 7:30 a.m. College students must complete the form no earlier than 7:30 a.m. and no later than 8 a.m. Elementary students must complete the form no earlier than 8:30 a.m. and no later than 9 a.m.

Anyone with information that may be of use to the investigation is encouraged to contact the South Park Township Police Department.
