Suspicious Web site listed school events

Adults at two local school events this weekend will be on extra alert after being notified of a suspicious Web site that listed events attended by children.

But the events will go on, and school leaders at Evergreen Middle School in Everett and Stanwood Elementary School say they already take security into consideration when planning school activities.

A Web surfer came across the site, which an Internet service provider has since shut down, and alerted Everett Public Schools on Wednesday. The site listed Evergreen Middle School’s carnival, to be held tonight.

Principal Joyce Minehan-Stewart said the 870-student school already planned to have a school resource officer present, along with more than 10 teacher supervisors. “It’s probably now made us more alert and conscious of who’s going to be there,” she said.

Stanwood Elementary is having its annual fall harvest festival at a middle school Saturday. Superintendent Jean Shumate said several staff and parent supervisors will be there, along with the high school student resource officer.

Schools also contacted local police about the Web site.

Everett police are conferring with the FBI about potential criminal activity, Sgt. Boyd Bryant said.

“It contained disturbing material, but technically it’s not illegal on a federal level,” FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs said.
