Letter: Thank you for work Dec. 13

To the Editor:

I appreciate the care for our children. On Dec. 13, many parents in our community received an email that gave our lives pause, stating that Montini Catholic School was being evacuated because of a threat.

I was one of those parents, and on behalf of all of our families, I would like to say thank you to everyone who stepped in to protect our children.

Thank you to the school staff, who made sure every child was accounted for and moved to a secure location. Thank you to the city of McHenry police, who stepped in to escort and guard, as well as investigate the threat. 

Although the claims of danger turned out to be baseless, the true blessing of the experience was knowing how well everyone came together to make the best out of a bad situation. Well done, one and all.
