JH UPDATE: November 26, 2018 - This morning on 11/26, a graffiti message was found written in the girl’s restroom of the Junior High School. The message was a threat to "shoot up the school, beware on 11/26". As always, the safety of students and staff is our top priority. Law enforcement was immediately notified. The Junior High students, faculty, and staff were put on a modified lock-down. In order to verify that no threat existed, student lockers and bags were searched. Metal detecting wands were again used to determine if any students were in possession of a weapon. After a thorough sweep of the building, NO evidence of any type of weapon was found. The student responsible for the writing was identified. Once the all clear was given by law enforcement, students, faculty, and staff were able to return to their normal schedule. Parents/Guardians, we ask that you visit with your child regarding the seriousness of these actions and the impact on our school community. Students who make these types of threats will receive consequences up to and including expulsion from the Hillsboro R-III School District. We appreciate your willingness to continually trust us with your children. Thank you for your patience and understanding as student safety is our number one priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s school or our office at 636-789-0060. Letter Link > https://5il.co/5p3e
