The Mt. Vernon High School administration has been made aware of rumors through social media of potential violence at Friday’s football game at New Palestine High School. We have been in communication with school administration at New Palestine throughout the day, and have been assured that local law enforcement has tracked down the root of the rumor and determined that there is no credible threat. School personnel from both districts, in agreement with local police, have determined that it is safe to continue with our football game.
New Palestine High School has taken preventative steps by increasing police presence at tomorrow’s game. Both schools remain committed to keeping all players, personnel, and spectators safe and hope to see a large group of fans there to support the Marauders. Defend the Shield!
