Principal's Message Concerning Student Safety
Dear Maine West Parents:
There is a rumor that circulated through Twitter about a safety concern at our assembly on Friday. We have investigated the rumor thoroughly, have found the source of the Twitter message, and have involved the Des Plaines Police from the very start of our investigation. At this time, we do not feel there is a threat to Maine West or our students, but we continue to investigate any and all reports. The Des Plaines Police Department has agreed to be a presence at Maine West, both in plain clothes and in uniform, throughout the week and at our assembly. We will continue to investigate any and all rumors, and will send a message to our students later this afternoon about the importance of keeping us informed of any threats to Maine West.
If you hear students talking about this, please ask them to report any relevant information to the Deans' Office.
It's been a difficult year for Maine West in many ways, but I want to let you know that your students' safety is and will continue to be of utmost importance to all of us. We will continue to keep you informed.
