Today a message was found in a restroom at Kickapoo High School threatening to blow up the building on Feb. 8. School staff and district administrators are taking every reasonable measure to determine whether this threat may be a hoax and that all appropriate local authorities have been notified.
Generally such threats are determined to be unfounded. However, when the safety and security of our students is at risk we want to take every precaution.
Before school commences Friday, Feb. 8, we will thoroughly check the school building and grounds, we will utilize a heightened sense of awareness and have additional school police officers on site.
Meantime, school police will be conducting a thorough investigation of this incident and will be cooperating with local law enforcement.
I encourage you to discuss today’s events with your student and assure them that we will do everything possible to ensure their safety.
