Benton #47 Parents/Guardians: Late this afternoon, just prior to dismissal, we had a student report a threatening message written on a bathroom wall at BMS. After working with Benton Police Dept. and interviewing several students, we do not believe the threat has any credibility. However, we will have an increased police presence on campus tomorrow and for the remainder of the week. We wanted to make sure we communicated this to you as quickly as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Thank you.
