MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - The alleged plan to murder four people at Topeka West High School is stirring up conversations at schools across the state.

Following reports of the investigation, Manhattan High School Principal Greg Hoyt sent out an email on Wednesday to parents and faculty to address the issue of safety.

Hoyt mentioned the recent implementation of the Olweus Bully Prevention Program, which is used to address and reduce bullying in schools to help create cultures that develop a sense of belonging for everyone.

The email also contained information about reporting potential incidents of crime or violence with the use of Crimestoppers, or communicating directly with law enforcement or school officials.

Hoyt is urging all parents and school staff members to pay attention to conversations and to stay alert for potentially dangerous or harmful comments.
