We would like our families to know that Lancaster School District and Amargosa Creek Middle School, diligently work hand-in-hand with the officers and personnel at Lancaster Sheriff’s Station, along with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD), to create the safest schools possible.
We have recently found the need to respond to anonymous notes and/or concerning student behaviors. Every threat, whether it be written, verbal or on social media is taken seriously by our staff and investigated immediately and thoroughly. LASD investigations have generally shown that a large majority of “threats” are made by students as a “joke” or “prank.”
