To the PGCPS Community,
I extend my thanks for your patience while the investigation of a potential threat at Laurel High School was underway yesterday. The safety of students and staff is of our utmost concern, and we are extremely thankful that Laurel High School students shared their concerns with the proper authorities so that we could work quickly with the Laurel City Police to investigate the matter.
Although the school never faced a direct threat, we must take all such reports seriously to ensure the well-being of our students and staff. Some of you have expressed your concern regarding the communications of this matter to the public; please be assured that we release all information as soon as it is made available by law enforcement officials. To ensure you receive all future emergency notifications, please sign up for the school system's e-Alerts by clicking here.

Interim Superintendent of Schools
