This morning, August 27, 2019, the school district was made aware of an alleged threat to the school from a student who was not on school grounds. The Bureau County Sheriff's Department was notified immediately. The administration and staff then performed safety protocol steps to ensure the safety of all students and staff in the building. The Sheriff’s department swiftly contained the situation by placing the student into custody. The situation will continue to be monitored by the Sheriff’s department and school administration. The District takes all threats seriously and will continue to investigate any and all allegations to ensure that we provide the safest environment possible for everyone in our district.
