Will the School say the same if Called? I personally am a bit freaked out by the whole thing. I think they just tried to cover it up, and are now seeing they put us kids at jeopardy.

ABSOLUTELY!!!! SEVERAL parents called WPPD, hcsd, Hwy Patrol, and was told totally different, than what WPHS is telling the press,and trying to back track and think the parents are as stupid as they all are,to go along with the BS they're telling now. LAW ENFORCEMENT came in because of calls/reports from parents who are,was extremely concerned, not because WPHS had been "working with them" . Every student, and parent is stressed,worried, and plain pissed at how this whole thing has been brushed off. That million dollar football turf could have been spent to help protect our kids,while they're at school,,but hell no! Sports always comes first

you got several different stories because you guys freaked the f out and the volume of calls were so large that people unconnected to the case were talking and randomly giving out info

Nope, I have the same story. I call BS on the answer given and refuse to let them blow smoke up my a$$ and expect me to smile and be happy about it. All I want know is what was said at the meeting last night.

Then maybe you should have taken time out of your busy schedule of spreading misinformation and BS here on Topix to attend the meeting yourself.

How can you "call BS on the answer given" when you weren't even present to hear the answers and subsequent discussions?!!

Stop scaring your kids. Stop panicking. Stop being part of the problem, and be part of the solution!!!

They did NOT say "all absences would be excused"; they said they would work with kids to allow them to make up a final they may have missed this week.

They DID say that programs like A+ require 95% attendance and that they cannot change that if you choose to panic and keep your kid home all week.

Stop scaring your kids; talk to them about what has happened, about how rumors and misinformation can create panic out of nothing. Tell your kids to be alert, to go to the principal of they see or hear anything of concern, to try to be calm and do well on their finals, and send them to school.

"Normal" is what you make it to be. Don't make paranoia and panic the new "normal" for your children. Teach them to be mature, to think things through, and to be contributing citizens of the community.

My busy scchedual includes me being at work all night since you know what I do with my time and seem to think that you know what I do with my spare time. If it was not for my JOB I would have attended the meeting. And since you seem to know what I am telling my child....I knew nothing of what was going on until she told me herself Sunday night. And yes I call it BS.... how does a flash freeze mob turn into threats of guns and suicides????? Does not add up one bit. I have not scared my child one bit she was already scared enough when she told me what was happening.

Flash freeze mobs turn into threats of guns and suicides because of kids trying to over hear conversations of other people only hear bits and pieces and turn it into something it was not. What's important to remember here is they are teenage kids. There's not a single teenage kid I know that doesn't take a story and run with it. Teenagers are all about drama. That's a sad thing but it is true! Unfortunately it's up to the parents to teach these kids the difference between right and wrong and we are failing as parents!! We jump to conclusions and install fear in our children and create hysteria instead of working as a community and coming together with the school system to protect our kids in a calming way. I happen to know those administrators very well. Two of them have their own kids at that school. They would give their life protecting each and everyone of those kids in that school and for anyone to say otherwise is a liar. If the police are saying the school is trying to cover it up then they are lying because the administration is in contact with them everyday.

I just called the West Plains Police Department and they told me that they have been working with the school administration and investigating this since Friday and they have found nothing. They said it appears to be nothing but rumors. They said it has been turned into more than it ever was because of the parents and that they would be perfectly comfortable sending their children to school this week. They said that there would also be policemen in the school for the rest of the week just as a precaution.

So tell me...if these kids were just planning a freeze frame flash mob with song and dance then why did these same kids post on social medias that they were bringing guns to school, there was a sucide pact, that they were bringing illegal drugs to school for a party at school? Explain that one away! Yeah thats a good idea lets make threats to bring guns and illegal drugs to school and make threats of a sucide pact when they are only planning a freeze frame flash mob with song and dance! Cause that makes since right? NOT! Then now theres rumors of it happening in surrounding schools also and of them randomly picking a different day to it cause they are under investigation! IS IT SAFE TO EVER SEND YOUR KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL? No one really knows who these mentally unstable kids are so how safe is it really to send our kids back to school?

We will see! I would be willing to bet these administrators you speak of dont send their kids to school on friday! We will also see if the stuff these kids have made threats of doing really happens where these administrators stay or if they will be the heros you think they are! If the administrators kids dont show up for school on friday either my guess is their parents the administrators will probably say oh they were sick! People they tracked down these kids that started the rumors of bringing guns to school and the suicide pact and their parents now know these kids are sick so my hope for these sick kids is that their parents care and love their kids enough to get them the help they need before they hurt themselves or anyone else! Parents talk to your kids! Love your kids!

The parents that are lacking common sense here are why these problems are happening. You claim that you are the parent who cares an everything is b.s. but here you are spreading your own rumors an eventually it will be twisted up into something you claim is not true. Why don't you take your @ss to the school an help them if your so much smarter an know everything, instead of get on this forum an start more craziness. You are doing absolutely nothing by getting on her that is going to help the situation you are just making it worse.

YOU are the reason these kids are acting the way they are. I need to grow up an have some respect for those who are taking care of your children while you are on here talking shit about them. How dare you assume that they are just sitting back doing nothing about any of these rumors. If you are so concerned you should of took off work an went to this meeting because there is no excuse for you not to have attended it.

That's not a good enough excuse not to go to the meeting. a parent who is worried about there childs safety should of been at the meeting an addressing there concerns. Instead of on here trying to tell everyone you call b.s. home school your kids since you know everything.

Seriously, did you just say Social Media? Did you read that somewhere? A newspaper?

Where did YOU see that these kids were bringing guns?

Stop terrorizing your children.
