"Hoax Reports of Active Shooter Incidents"
Within recent weeks, several schools around the country have been impacted by an increasing number of hoax reports of active shooter incidents. We want to assure everyone that we are aware of the incidents and we take all threats seriously until proven otherwise. If we receive such a threat, our plans include rapid communication of accurate information. We encourage you to stay in touch by visiting our school’s website page (www.junctionhill.k12.mo.us) We will also use our Apptegy school call system to send out mass notifications via phone and text.
The Junction Hill School District will always remain vigilant regardless of false reports, and we will also pursue any potential prosecution regarding those who seek to disrupt school by making a false threat. As always, we encourage anyone with concerning information about a student or situation to report it immediately to us. If it is outside of normal school hours, please call local law enforcement at 417-256-2544, Missouri State Highway Patrol at 417-469-3121, and/or Courage2Report (866-748-7047 www. courage2reportmo.com).
