Greg Pendley Statement on Allegations and Rumors

Statement Regarding Allegations and Rumors Concerning the

Winston County School System

Several allegations and rumors are currently circulating regarding some of the schools in the Winston County School System.

First, I want everyone to know that the safety of our students and employees is my highest priority.

Second, I want everyone to know that we have thoroughly investigated every incident that has been reported to us, and students that have made inappropriate comments have been dealt with in a manner that ensures school safety.

To be clear, no Winston County School has been evacuated or closed due to active shooters, bomb threats, or any other acts of violence.

I thank you for your concern, support, and help in making our school system the best it can be.

Greg Pendley

Superintendent, Winston County Schools
