PCSD Incident

This message just released by the Park City School District:

"Last night at approximately 9:20 p.m., Park City School District Administration was made aware of a social media post via Snapchat of a student putting a gun-like weapon into a backpack and making a statement “all will be better tomorrow.” 

As with any threat of violence, Park City School District takes each situation seriously. Park City Police was notified immediately and dispatched to the student’s home, where an interview for intent and search for the weapon was conducted. The student complied immediately showing gun-like weapon in the picture, which was an airsoft gun, and disclosing the information of the recipients of the Snapchat post.  

While there is no immediate threat, the student will remain home with parent(s)/ guardian(s) and the Park City Police Department and Park City School District will do a full investigation. We are grateful to law enforcement officials in both Summit County Sheriff’s Office and Park City Police for the rapid response to this incident. Additionally, we are appreciative of the students who took this serious, reported to parents, who then contacted school officials. Our children's safety is the number one priority."

Tough but fair, Leslie is the woman most of Park City wakes up with every weekday morning. Leslie has been at KPCW since 1990 and her years at KPCW have given her depth and insight, guiding her as she asks local leaders and citizens the questions on everyone’s minds during the live interviews of the Local News Hour.
