Dear CSE Parents/Guardians -

Shortly before the start of the school day today, the school received an email about a threat made to the school on a popular social media site. When this happens, CSE responds as if the threat is real, this is how we keep everyone safe. CSE leadership immediately contacted St. Paul Police, who came onsite to assess for any risk. While the investigation is ongoing, we are confident there is no risk to CSE students and staff.

As always, it is important for parents/guardians to monitor our children’s social media accounts. Students are exposed to much more than they have the developmental ability to navigate on social media sites. They are also exposed to people who do not have their safety in mind. Additionally, any adult who sees anything concerning on social media regarding our school or its staff and students should report it to school leadership immediately.

If you have further questions or concerns regarding this information, please feel free to call or email the Community School of Excellence at 651-917-0073 or
