MCHS Student Social Media Post



Yesterday evening at approximately 4:30 p.m., Thursday October 5th, McCreary County School District staff learned of a social media “snap chat” post from a 9th grade student at McCreary Central High School.  The post said, “can’t wait for the day to take the lives of others” and  “hope you’re not on my list.”  Law Enforcement was immediately dispatched to the student’s residence and started an investigation.  The law enforcement investigation revealed the student snap chatted this out of boredom.  The School Resource Officer will file appropriate charges with the McCreary County Attorney today.


At no time was any student in danger nor did the student develop a list.



Parents, please monitor your child’s cell phone, computer, etc. and social media usage as best as you can.  One simple post out of boredom could result in horrific or criminal results.  We have provided several websites to assist you in this endeavor.
