SIDNEY — “Thank you.”
With those words Sidney City Schools Board of Education President Zack Bosslet expressed his appreciation to the district employees who have dealt with the threats at Sidney Middle School over the past several weeks. His comments were shared Monday night during the BOE meeting.
He praised the staff for their calmness and professionalism during the problems.
“I praise you for your poise in the face of these unfortunate events,” said Bosslet. “Thank you for involving law enforcement the way you did.”
He said as a parent of students in the district law enforcement did a good job so school could continue.
On a personal note, Bosslet said he hopes all students involved in writing the alleged threats are disciplined for their actions.
“The staff did a wonderful job,” said Superintendent Bob Humble.
