Dear LCTI Families,
Thankfully, Lehigh Career & Technical Institute students and staff enjoyed a productive, but uneventful school day on Thursday, Nov. 17.
LCTI’s school counselors, as well as Lehigh Valley Health Network and Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21 counselors, are on hand at the school to help students deal with invisible reminders — stress, fear, frustration, etc. — of recent events. About 30 students sought help from counselors on Thursday.
All of the threat reports were made via the Safe2Say Something anonymous tipline and proved to be unfounded. State police have teamed up with the FBI on the investigation and hope to make an arrest soon.
Parents and guardians can help LCTI avoid more incidents like the ones earlier this month by talking with their students about Safe2Say. Make sure your child knows how to use it properly and that misusing it can lead to criminal charges. Visit the youth violence prevention program’s website to learn more.
As always, LCTI is committed to providing students with an excellent education in a learning environment where students are safe and feel secure. Thank you for your patience and continued support as we work toward resolving this situation.
