At approximately 8:30am this morning, a Google-generated number called police dispatch to report an emergency at Gering High School. Law enforcement was dispatched to the district immediately, and the district crisis plan procedures were put in place. Police performed walk-throughs at all GHS buildings and determined that the call was a hoax.
Although this report was a hoax, all Gering Public Schools will remain in elevated security throughout the remainder of today. We have activated the Crisis Response Team to Gering High School and members will be available to meet with students and staff who need support in processing the events. Thank you again for your patience as we work to keep staff and students safe.
UPDATE: 3/2/2023 at 7:00p.m. - Message from Dr. Regan to GPS Families.
