Statement from Principal Todd Whitaker
 March 12, 2018              
 
 
 Olympian Family,              
 
This morning we were notified by a concerned, anonymous parent that a student may have brought a weapon into the school last week. We took all precautions once notified to secure and search the building to ensure everyone’s safety.  We immediately alerted the Olympia Fields Police Department and at approximately 12:05 p.m. the approved Rich Township lock down procedures were followed.        
 
School Police Liaisons and law enforcement agencies, along with K9 units, did a complete sweep of the building. No weapon and/or look alike weapon was recovered. All staff and students are safe and were not in harm’s way.          
 
Rich Township High School District 227 take threats of violence serious.  Working together we will continue to maintain a safe school environment.          
 
Sincerely,                  
 
Principal Todd Whitaker
