Threatening Letter Upsets Parent

LELAND -- A threatening letter written about a Leland Middle School student has one parent wondering why she can't be told what's being done to keep her daughter safe.

Shannon Bland has an eighth grade daughter at Leland Middle School. Another eighth grade girl wrote a threatening letter about Bland's daughter, detailing how she would use pens and scissors to kill her.

The school says they are taking the threat very seriously and have disciplined the student.

Bland is upset because she knows the student who wrote the letter is still in class.

The Leland Middle School principal says appropriate disciplinary action has been taken against the student, but cannot discuss specifics because of confidentiality purposes.
