February 7, 2023 Response to the Threats against Schools AG Nessel Reminds Residents of Potential Punishments for Making Threats Against Michigan Schools LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel reissued a video today that highlights the seriousness of making threats against schools after four local districts were the targets of swatting. Swatting is defined as a prank call made to emergency services in an attempt todispatch law enforcement to a particular location. Michigan State Police have reported that K-12 schools in Detroit, Jackson, Ann Arbor, and Okemos have been the victims of the prank calls this morning. “Threats of violence in our schools disrupt the classroom, tax our local law enforcement agencies and harm our students’ sense of safety,” said Nessel. “Whether these are real threats made by those intent on doing harm or pranks made by kids trying to get a day off, they are real crimes with real consequences. It’s critical that adults and students alike understand the seriousness of these threats and the criminal charges they could face.” In the video, Nessel explains the potential charges one could face if they make a threat of violence, which include: communicating a threat of terrorism, 20-year felony; calling in a bomb threat, a four-year felony; malicious use of a telecommunications device, a six-month misdemeanor; and threatening violence against school employee or student, a one-year misdemeanor. Additionally, swatting could result in the following charges: false report of a crime, a 93-day misdemeanor; false report resulting in physical injury, a 5-year felony; false report resulting in a serious bodily impairment, a 10-year felony; and/or false report resulting in a death, a 15-year felony. In addition to serving time in jail or prison, those that are found guilty of these crimes can face fines of up to $50,000.00. The video can be viewed on the Department of Attorney General’s YouTube page. If you receive a threat or know of a threat of violence against your community, please contact your local law enforcement. You can also leave a tip with the state’s OK2SAY hotline by calling 8-555-OK2SAY (855-565-2729) or texting 652729 (OK2SAY). The hotline operates 24/7 and protects the confidentiality of the reporter’s identity. OK2SAY, which is housed within the Michigan State Police, provides for confidential reports of potential self-harm, harm to others, or criminal acts including, but not limited to, sexual abuse, assault, or rape, directed at students, school employees, or schools in this state.

We are thrilled to announce that SPS will be partnering with SPD to implement a school resource officer. The district was just awarded the grant today, we have work to do with the PD to get things going. We are looking forward to this opportunity!
Good afternoon! It was nice to have our kids back in school today! Everyone returned with new energy and enthusiasm. We have officially started second semester, if your student had outstanding grades he/she should be working with their teacher(s), all final grades should be wrapped up tomorrow. A few ideas: *We are looking a board member. Unfortunately one of our members had to step away from the board. The vacancy would be through to the next election cycle. *The elementary school will be welcoming a reading tutor 5 days a week through the Americorps program. We look forward to working with Jeff Wilkinson and the Americorps team. *We were awarded a grant to get our Robotics Team up and going!! If your student is interested in joining the team have them stop by and see Mrs. Spear at the HS. *We are excited about the possibility of starting an ESports Club in the future. Stay tuned for more information. *Our FFA is reving up for their competition season. We look forward to seeing the great projects and outcomes they produce. I hope you had a blessed holiday season! Welcome back! Go Blue!

Friends and Family of Springport, Please pass this information on to others. We cannot use the automated system to communicate. Students and Staff SHOULD NOT use their computers or attempt to access the school's internet. Thank you for your help, Dr. Christie Robinson Superintendent Good evening, Over the weekend, our technology consortium suffered a systems outage. The outage affected critical operating systems in the district, including but not limited to heating, telephones, and classroom technology. Jackson County ISD technology staff is working to fully investigate the disruptions and to restore affected systems. Because this will take some time, superintendents from both Jackson and Hillsdale counties have determined the best course of action is to close schools for tomorrow, Monday, November 14, 2022. We understand the difficulties this decision may cause, and appreciate your understanding and patience as our technology team works around the clock to get our systems back online and our students back in school. We will provide more information as it becomes available. Sincerely, Kevin Oxley Superintendent, Jackson County Intermediate School District
