Dear Baraga Families,   It frustrates me to have to send yet another communication of this nature but feel it is important that we address and share it with you.   It has come to our attention that there is a nationwide student Tik Tok challenge that is scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, December 17th. This challenge includes bringing weapons to school. We do not know where this originated from, but we wanted to let our school families know of this “challenge”. Please have a conversation with your children reassuring them that school is s safe place to be and that all safety protocols will be followed. If appropriate, please have a conversation about how wrong a challenge like this is and also how scary it can be for others. Our local law enforcement agencies have been contacted and are aware of this challenge on Tik Tok. They will be present in the building tomorrow. Please secure any personal weapons you may have or students may have access to.   As a reminder, any weapon brought onto school property will lead to an immediate and mandatory expulsion from any public school in Michigan. This is clearly stated in the Michigan Revised Code. Students will also face criminal charges.   Please reach out to administration if you have any questions.   Thank you,    Richard Sarau, Superintendent Baraga Schools      Richard Sarau Superintendent
Please be aware that we are not letting kids leave the building for lunch tomorrow.

Dear Baraga Families,   This afternoon Baraga Area Schools went into a controlled lock-down due to an unknown adult entering the building without checking into the office. The adult was asked to leave and was noncompliant. There were no weapons or harmful threats. Police were called and the school followed all safety protocols. The adult did leave the building on their own, escorted by the principal. The building was secured, inside and out, and the police were able to apprehend the adult. Staff, students, and authorities did a phenomenal job. The police were here within minutes. Everyone is safe and we appreciate all the help from local authorities.    Thank you for your patience and your trust in Baraga Schools.     Richard Sarau Superintendent
Families, We were in a lockdown this afternoon because of an unknown visitor entering the building. The authorities were called and responded very quickly. The subject was escorted out of the building and was apprehended. More information will be released shortly. Everyone is safe and classes have been resumed. Thank you.

Dear Baraga Families, This message is to address a current situation that has come to light in our local committees. There are some threatening messages going around on Snapchat and Instagram against L’Anse and Calumet schools. There was some concern that Baraga Schools was also named in these messages. To our knowledge this is not true and nothing has been found to support this claim. Law enforcement is aware of the situation and the different agencies are working together and investigating the threats and their credibility. They have been able to identify a student (not from Baraga) who has allegedly initiated some of these messages. We at Baraga schools do not take this lightly. The school’s administration is working closely with law enforcement and will take measures to keep all students safe. At this time, there is no credible information to substantiate the threats with any of the local schools. We will continue to monitor the situation, along with law enforcement. If any further information is released we will be passing that along to you. If you have further information or concerns please contact the school or the sheriff’s office. Local law enforcement has also put out a statement that is attached below. Thank you, Richard Sarau, Superintendent

The Houghton County Sheriff’s Office received a report and are aware of potential online threats to schools in the Copper Country.   An ongoing investigation has revealed unsubstantiated internet application threats and rumors consistent to threats across the State of Michigan after the unfortunate Oxford shooting.   The Houghton County Sherriff’s Office is working closely with all the schools in the district, their superintendents and local law enforcement on this matter.  A greater law enforcement presence will be placed in to effect starting on 12/13/21.   It is important to note that any threat towards schools will be taken seriously and prosecuted fully.   We encourage parents to monitor their children’s electronic devices.   Please encourage your children to be aware, and if they see something, say something.   Reports can be called in to 9-1-1 or your local law enforcement agency.  Individuals and students can also use OK2SAY to submit tips.    www.michigan.gov/ok2say.
