Dec. 2, 2021 Family message

Good morning, Mukilteo School District families. 

Last night, several students reported a threat on social media directed at Mariner, Voyager and Explorer schools. We notified law enforcement, staff and families at those schools last night. In the night, the person responsible for the threatening post was taken into custody. Staff and families at those three schools received an update early this morning. 

We are grateful for Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department’s quick work to resolve the issue and the staff who monitored the situation throughout the night. 

These situations, even once resolved, are understandably concerning. This was a great example of many people working together to keep schools safe. Thanks to the students who reported the social media posts right away. Because they reported the concern immediately, we were able to respond quickly and resolve the issue without having to interrupt school. It may be helpful to reassure children of any age that all is well and there are many people working behind the scenes to keep them safe, day and night. 

Sincerely, 

Mukilteo School District
