The Blue Springs School District acknowledged the issue and issued the following statement:
“Over the weekend, we noticed a list on social media. Our administrative staff, the Public Security Bureau, and the Blue Springs Police Department are working together to investigate. At this time, social media. Posts have turned out to be unreliable. “
