LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – School officials with Lexington Christian Academy confirm that a verbal threat was made against another student.

Mark D. Sisk, the head of the school, sent an email to parents in the aftermath.   The threat happened on Thursday, Aug. 30.

Here is the email in its entirety:

Last Thursday, August 30th, at the Junior High campus, the administration was informed of a verbal threat made by a student against another student.

The staff immediately isolated the student who made the threat and contacted local law enforcement. We commend the Junior High students who heard this threat and quickly reported it to our staff.

Since last Thursday, LCA has taken steps to ensure that any risk of ongoing threatening behavior has been mitigated. Per school policy, a committee was formed consisting of board members and faculty representation to investigate the matter. The committee and the School Resource Officer reviewed the matter thoroughly. The committee examined this information and based upon all the evidence, the committee recommended the student be allowed to return to school with conditions that will ensure the safety of all of our students. Because this is a student disciplinary matter, no additional information can be shared.

As a school, Lexington Christian Academy is committed to maintaining a secure environment and considers safety one of our highest priorities.  All matters concerning threats will be fully investigated and acted upon.

Please continue to keep LCA and our students in your prayers.
