CLINTON, Mo. -- After talking to two students who created a "hit list" that was found Thursday at Clinton Middle School, school officials determined no risk of harm to students or staff.
According to Dr. Craig D. Eaton, Clinton School District Superintendent, the two students were disciplined according to the district's Discipline Code Book.
In a letter to parents, Eaton said the list was found just prior to school dismissal on Thursday. The list contained the first names of 23 students, along with a teacher's name. The list was titled "Hit List" and also had the names of the two students in the title.
"Please know that we are committed to keeping our schools safe and welcoming places for children. Students and parents can help by reporting any behavior which compromises our schools safety. We encourage our students and parents to let school personnel know if a situation exists which could ever place them or others in danger," Eaton said in the letter to parents.
Clinton schools dismiss early on Friday and Monday, Feb. 16 is a holiday for President's Day.
