No-one is bringing a gun to school...They dont even own one or anyone that lives near him...It was said out of anger cause he is always being pick on at school...his parents have went to the school and the BOE and they will not do anything to stop the bullying....no-one has anything to worry about....I'm sure his parents are handling the situation...no need to cause an uproar...(not saying that you are)...just dont want anyone on here bashing him...he is really a good kid...the schools need to put a stop to all this bullying...

In today's society and in light of recent events in our country, no threat should be ignored. His words, no matter if he meant them or not, caused panic in a community. The child should be removed from the school until they are evaluated by a psychologist and those that have bullied should be punished as well.

My problem with this situation is that administration did not inform parents that a threat was made. That was a terroristic threat & WV State Police should have been contacted during school hours. But that was not the case, instead administration did not want to alarm anyone...Yeah right! Instead parents find out about the incident on facebook. Then after administration finds out that their coverup didn't work they send out an email assuring that OUR children are safe. If nothing would have been posted, an email would have never been sent out. Administration should have had a lockdown & POLICE called immediately with parents informed that a threat was made. Now I agree that the child needs to be suspended but also the children that are doing ANY bullying to ANY child at ANYTIME needs to be suspended. But, instead the administration only suspends or punishes the children they are not friends with or say their hands are tied due to higher administration telling them they can not suspend the privilaged children. Rules are rules if one child gets suspended then all children involved should get suspended. Just because some children have more than others or their parents have pull or money to flash they should not be treated differently. Writing a letter in a book is not punishment, child probably laughed while they were writing. Sad thing is if prayer & paddeling were still allowed in school, this would never have gotten this far.

Perhaps parents should stop being nice to their kids and start teaching them that bullying is wrong. It ruins lives everyday. So maybe the blame shouldn't be on the bullies , but the parents of the bullies?

Prayer isn't banned in school, only school led prayers. Maybe they should pray to the same god that protected those kids in Newtown or perhaps the one that allows over 20,000 people to die of starvation daily. "Two hands working can accomplish more than a thousand clasped together in prayer".

I think that the lil boy shounld not have to go do any thing because a child can only take so much and my daughter said that they are mean to that little boy everyday they throw food at him and call him names and a lot of other stuff and my daughter get bullied all the time to so i know how that kid feel and his mom and dad feel because you go to the school and try to get something done about it and never happens so i think every child that has been or is being bullied should make signs that something should be done about all of the bulling going on at lenore grade school!!!!!!

It happens all the time. IF you have been bullied then post your comments and let us know about it. Then maybe they will do something about it at that school.

I feel sorry for the person who is getting bullied. They should do something to the bullies. He should not have said what he said, but if you are being tormented every day by a gang then how do you defend yourself to get them to stop. I went through a bully situation at Tug Valley by a popular clique. I didn't know how to defend myself. They would make comments and threats daily. The teachers were aware, but they loved the little clique. I told one teacher that I trusted, but that didn't help either. Nothing was done. Torment and Hell is only putting lightly what I felt like I was going through at the time. I can only imagine how alone this person feels and defenseless. Help our children. Stand up for the person being bullied, and help the bullies see that their actions are wrong. I went to a training for parents at another school. The man told us that if your child is being bullied, sue. I am not a person that would advocate this because I do not like to sue people, but if that is what it takes to get the administrators to wake up and take action, then do it. West Virginia has a safe schools policy. It is their responsibility to provide a safe school. Our children have to go to school by law. We should not have to throw our children to the wolves.

I couldn't agree more but I think most of us don't know where to start to get the school to stop the bullies.

This is so sad and it makes me so angry that this child is being punished,
I cant see how these teachers can just sit back and watch these children be tormented. i am enraged! I have known this family my whole life they are good people, I think it's time we as parents as a community stand up and stop our children from being bullied!!! I'm calling the board myself something needs to be done, maybe if we stand together something will be done, I urge all of you to do the same....
