Good evening Mishawaka High School families,

The investigation into the threat concerning Mishawaka High School is still ongoing at this time. We understand that this can be unsettling for students and parents alike; please understand that we are limited in terms of what we can share due to privacy, safety concerns and to not compromise the investigation. We are able to share that the current stage in the police investigation involves search warrants. Based on any information obtained through the search warrants that may unfold during the night, we will announce a decision at 6:00 AM if Wednesday, December 22 will be an eLearning day or if students will return to in-person learning. 

A reminder to all students and families, if you see something, say something. Tips can and should be reported immediately by directly speaking with administrators or counselors, calling (800) 418-6423 ext. 359, texting the word TIPS to the number 66746, or using the website of www.safeschoolhelpline.com. Providing timely information and concerns aids us in keeping our schools safe.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as decisions are made with the safety of students and staff as our highest priority.


Wayne Barker

Superintendent of Schools
