We are aware of the social media post concerning a threat made to schools in a neighboring county. To our knowledge, there have been no threats made to Marion County Schools. However, our local law enforcement has been made aware of the situation, and our schools will operate on a soft lockdown today only as a precautionary measure.
Thank you to the members of the Marion County Sheriff’s office, Hamilton PD, Winfield PD, and Berry PD for carrying out a drug dog search at one of our schools today.
