Police find possible elementary school hit list is 'not a threatening situation'

Leslie police find hit list non threatening

LESLIE, Mich. (WSYM) - Police have concluded an investigation into what some parents believe was a hit list discovered at a Mid-Michigan elementary school.

FOX 47 reported Friday parents were concerned over a possible hit list discovered at Woodworth Elementary School in Leslie.

The list was discovered May 30 with six student’s names.

In a Facebook post, Leslie Police say they've determined the origin of that note found is not a threatening situation and instead is the example of a bad decision made by a third grader.

Leslie Police say the student many suspected was behind the note, actually wasn't.

Dozens of parents filled Leslie School Board's Public Forum Tuesday night with safety concerns.

During the Tuesday night meeting, the Leslie School Board announced that the situation had been mishandled, and apologized for lack of communication.

The school board also told parents that they will continue to work on enhancing their safety policy by forming a parental advisory board to explore better ways to keep students safe.
