Dear Dooly County School System Families,

 We have been informed from a federal agency that there is a sophisticated group of pranksters calling in hoax school shootings statewide. If we get a similar call, we will treat it as a real situation until we verify otherwise.  Please be aware that we are taking these calls very seriously and will respond accordingly. There is no cause for alarm, so please allow for your students to continue learning without disruption to the school day.  The Dooly County School System is coordinating with the Vienna Police Department and the Dooly County Sheriff's Office.  There are no threats called in to Dooly schools yet, but due to the increase of hoax calls across the state, we want you to know that we are aware of the issue and are prepared to address it if necessary.  The well-being and safety of our students and staff are of the utmost priority to the Dooly County School System. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation!
