I went to school at Belvidere North, I always saw it as a safe place that had my best interest in mind. The teachers and administration were always quick to help resolve conflicts and help students when in need. This was years ago, I am so glad to know the staff still looks out for the children at the school.

According to WIFR, "a 15-year old is charged with felony disorderly conduct after police say he made verbal threats toward Belvidere North High School."

An Employee notified the school resource officer about the threats. The teen's home was searched where multiple guns were found.

Please, if you know or hear anything like this call the authorities immediately. Being a former Blue Thunder, I applaud how they handle student safety. Doors were always locked and the resource officers were always active to resolve any issues.
