Cody School District #6 Safe With Cody Police Ever-Watching Eyes

The Cody Police Department at the request of District #6, Cody School District, increased patrols and resource Officers inside the schools as social media accounts such as “TikTok” are showing violence may occur at public schools. However, the TIK Tök accounts are not specific, in which schools just refer to schools.

The post states:

Cody Public Schools, Cody Wyoming Park County #6
Yesterday at 12:28 PM ·

Good Afternoon Park 6 Families,

Park County School District #6 has become aware of a troubling post that has been shared widely this week on the social media platform, TikTok. The post refers to inciting school violence, including gun violence, and is now spreading to multiple social media platforms. Language in these posts includes, “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on “Friday, December 17.”

We take any possible threat to school safety seriously and are closely monitoring the situation.
The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district. We have heard reports from other districts that the same post is circulating in their schools.

Additionally, the district has been in contact with the Cody Police Department regarding the post. We will have an increased police presence in our buildings on Friday as an added precaution.

This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety/ threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity. Please speak with your students about proper behavior online and the severity and repercussions of sharing threats of this nature.

If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult immediately.

As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students.

Sincerely,

Tim Foley
Interim Superintendent

The Cody Police Department has increased presence in the needed areas, but for anything to happen in Cody, Wyoming is highly unlikely, but they took various precautions today just to be on the safe side. The Cody Police can respond quickly to anything that could or would happen. Public Safety is their middle name.
