Community Announcement

Dear Blue Ridge Family:

I feel it’s appropriate to advise all of a recently uncovered threat of violence at our junior high school. More importantly, the threat was swiftly neutralized when law enforcement conducted an investigation, resulting in the arrest of the student responsible.

In addition to law enforcement, I want to commend the brave students who promptly alerted the school’s administration to the potential threat. Their courage to speak up is vital in our efforts to keep our schools and community safe.

Notwithstanding the situation, I remain confident that our schools are a safe and secure environment for our students and staff.


Dr. Michael L. Wright
