University High School Titans – University High School families,I regret to share that administration and law enforcement have confirmed that during an altercation around dismissal time, a student received very minor injuries from another student with a pocket knife. The students involved have been identified and will be disciplined accordingly. The campus is secure.
As a parent, I understand this information can be unsettling. We will actively be reviewing the incident and and ensuring an appropriate response. It also serves as a wakeup call. I cannot stress enough the role we all play in our children’s safety at school, and the role our students and staff play in safety.
Weapons of any kind are prohibited on campus, and students who violate this policy will not go unpunished. It is vital that parents are aware of any objects your child may have access to and ensure they are not bringing any prohibited items to school. Additionally, any students who become aware of the possibility of a weapon on campus are responsible for reporting this information to an adult or to FortifyFL to prevent devastating instances such as this from occurring. Again, the campus is secure at this time, and classes will resume tomorrow. I want to again thank our school staff and law enforcement who aided in this incident. Have a good evening.
