October 24, 2022

Hello Falcon Families,

I would like to thank you all so much for your patience today. It was brought to my attention that there was a possible threat to the high school made over the weekend. I certainly did not want to take any chances, so I made the decision to cancel school for the day in order to fully investigate. We are working with the Kern County Sheriff’s office to continue to ensure the safety of the school and have found no reason to believe the possible threat had validity. School will resume tomorrow October 25, 2022 as normal. We will be putting additional efforts in place starting tomorrow to ease everyone’s mind and continue to ensure a safe environment such as additional law enforcement present on campus throughout the day and possible searches of backpacks as needed. I apologize for the late notice of the cancelation this morning, but the safety of our students and staff will always be my number one priority.

I would also like to encourage all parents to please be aware of the social media platforms your children are participating in and encourage them to not play a role in sites posing to be run by FMHS but are not. These sites are causing many issues for schools and many students.

Sara Haflich
FMHS Principal
