Recent threats prompt discussion at Big Sky High School

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Threats of violence at Big Sky High School last week prompted administrators to hold a forum to increase transparency in how the Missoula County Public School district deals with armed threats.

Parents gathered in the Big Sky High gymnasium to discuss the pressing issue of threat assessment in their school Thursday night where parents voiced their concerns directly to the principal, assistant principals and security staff.

The most popular subject was the need for clear lines of communications between, students, parents and the school. Although no hard solutions were provided, Big Sky High School principal Natalie Jaeger and other faculty members recognized these issues.

The transparency was appreciated although some who spoke at the meeting thought parents need to show up to express their feelings and concerns directly.

“To the other parents, that had the opportunity to be here and to represent your student and keep them safe -- and have your opinion heard. You missed out.," said parent James Dawson.

"There's always gonna be something some person or another wants clarification on, but I think our principal here at Big Sky did a fine job tonight and i hope that our school district does the same," fellow parent Darren Bayer told MTN News.

Missoula County Public Schools will continue to address security issues as they arise and will be on the agenda for future public meetings.
