Updated 8:42 a.m.

Jump to Spanish | Somali

We want our families to know that a non-credible threat that was made to Washburn High School. We are communicating with Ramsey families because of the proximity of the schools.

We take all threats seriously and immediately involved the Minneapolis Police Department to investigate the situation. The police conducted a walk-through at Washburn last night and determined that no unsafe materials were found. In working with police, we determined that the threat to the school was not credible and that school would operate on a regular schedule today.

As a precaution, both Washburn and Ramsey will operate on a code yellow lockdown today. During a code yellow lockdown, learning continues as usual but students remain in their classrooms during class periods. Outer doors to the school are locked and visitors must display identification in order to enter the school.

We want to remind our students, families and community members that there are serious school and criminal consequences for individuals who make threats to our students and schools. We will cooperate with Minneapolis police to ensure that any individuals are held responsible for their actions.

The safety of our students and staff is paramount and we will take all precautions to ensure the security of our schools.

Good morning. This is Rachel Hicks, director of media relations and public affairs for Minneapolis Public Schools. I am calling to make you aware of a non-credible threat that was made to Washburn High School. We are communicating with Ramsey families because of the proximity of the schools.

We take all threats seriously and immediately involved the Minneapolis Police Department to investigate the situation.

Este es el texto que recibió hoy de las Escuelas Públicas de Minneapolis

Buenos días. Este mensaje es departe de Rachel Hicks, directora de Relaciones con los Medios de Comunicación y los Asuntos Públicos para las Escuelas Públicas de Minneapolis. Estoy llamando para informarles sobre una amenaza no creíble que hemos recibido en contra de la preparatoria Washburn. Estamos comunicando con las familias de Ramsey por la proximidad de las escuelas.

Tomamos cualquier amenaza en serio, e inmediatamente involucramos al departamento de policía de Minneapolis para que investiguen la situación. Ayer en la noche, la policía dirigió un paseo de seguridad, revisando el edificio escolar entero, y han determinado que no ay ningún material peligroso presente en el edificio. En trabajando con la policía nosotros hemos determinado que la amenaza a la preparatoria Washburn no fue creíble y que la escuela debe operar con un horario normal hoy. 

Como precaución, ambas escuelas Washburn y Ramsey estarán operando hoy bajo un “code yellow lockdown” o sea, un Código Amarillo que mantiene todas las puertas cerradas con seguro. Durante un ‘Código Amarillo’ el aprendizaje continúe como siempre, pero los estudiantes quedan en sus salones de clases durante los periodos de clases. Las puertas principales alrededor de la escuela estarán cerradas con seguro y cualquier visitante tiene que proveer identificación antes de recibir permiso para entrar la escuela.

La seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal escolar es primordial y tomamos cada precaución necesaria para asegurar la seguridad de nuestras escuelas.

Queremos decir que existan graves consecuencias escolares y consecuencias criminales para individuos que hagan amenazas a nuestros estudiantes y escuelas. Seguimos cooperando con la policía de Minneapolis para asegurar que los individuos responsables reciben las consecuencias justas. 

Otra vez, este mensaje es departe de Rachel Hicks del departamento de Comunicaciones para las Escuelas Públicas de Minneapolis, llamando para informarles que la preparatoria Washburn y la secundaria Ramsey estarán operando bajo un Código Amarillo hoy, el 29 de enero como una medida precautoria. Gracias.

Tani waa qoraal aad ka heshay maanda Dugsiyada Dadweynaha Minneapolis:

Subax wanaagsan, Qufkani waa Rachel Hicks, oo ka socota MPS. Waxaan kuu soo wacayaa inaan kula socod siiyo hajabaad aan run ahayn oo naga soo gaartay dugsiga Washburn High School. Waxaan la xiriireynaa qoysyada Ramsey sababta oo ah waxay isku dhowyihiin dugsiga Washburn.

Hanjabaadkasta ee na soo gaarta si dhan ah ayaan u qaadanaa — waxaana arinta la socon siinay booliska Minneapolis. Booliska ayaa baaray dugsiga shalay, waana laga waayay wax khatar ah. Maadaama uusan booliska arag wax khatar ah, dugsiga wuxuu u howl gali doonaa sida caadiga ahayd. 

Si loo digtoonaado, fasallada markii ay ardaydu soo galaan, albaabada la soo galo dugsiyada Washburn iyo Ramsey kor ayaa laga xiri doonaa, cidkasta ee soo gashana waxaa lawaydiin doonaa ID.

Amiga iyo amaanka ardaydeena waa muhiim, waana digtoonaan doonaa, si loo hubiyo amaanka dugsiyadeena.

Caqabado waawayn ayay kasban doonaan ciddii u hanjabta ardaydeena iyo dugsiyadeena. Waxaan la shaqayn doonaa Booliska Minneapolis si loo hubiyo in qofkasta laga abaal mariyo ficillada ay geesteen.
 
Marlabaad, qofkani waa Rachel Hicks, oo ka socota MPS. Waxaan kuu soo wacayaa inuu Dugsia Ramsey saarnaan doono Code Yellow maanta, January 29, digtoonaansho ahaan. Mahadsanid.
