Mead School District on high alert after Facebook post causes concern

Posted: Updated:
MEAD, Wash. -

A Mead mother’s Facebook post is getting a lot of attention. She posted a Snapchat photo that her daughter received back in March. But the reason why she posted it now is because she says there’s another incident that’s causing her concern.

It shows a handgun with a caption over it saying it would look good next to their heads. Tammy Moncur says she notified police immediately about it and law enforcement did start investigating. Tammy says she found out it was another student who sent it to her daughter and her daughter’s friend. They didn’t press charges, but they did take care of the issue through the school.

But Tammy is concerned again because her daughter’s car was egged recently.

“I want my child safe. I want all the children safe,” she says.

The Mead School District is well aware of the issue. They addressed it Thursday morning. The district says that they do take these concerns of intimidation, harassment, and bullying seriously and do investigate it. They are now investigating this case again because of the concerns brought forth by students and parents.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is also aware of this most recent concern. They are also investigating this. They would like to remind the public it’s important to report these concerns immediately.
