PTO Fundraiser Update: PTO has extended the Little Ceasar due date from today to tomorrow September 16. Any in person order will not be accepted after tomorrow. Thank you
Dear Concord Families, This morning, we worked with the police to conduct a deep investigation into the reported threat. Security camera footage was reviewed. Deputy Jacobsen completed interviews. He has concluded that there is not a credible threat to the students and staff at Concord and there was a false report filed through the Okay2Say system. With that conclusion, we will have the school open for afternoon and evening athletics along with the regular school schedule tomorrow. That said, we know these situations are unnerving. Thus, we will be taking extra precautions over the coming days. We will continue to monitor the situation. We have encouraged our staff to continue to focus on building relationships with our students. Being proactive is important and relationships are key. Additionally, we will have a police presence and more adults at the entrance of the buildings each morning. We have reiterated the process for reporting threats and managing emergencies to our staff. We are very grateful for the support of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, and we are grateful for our community. I know closing school is not ideal for anyone, so I appreciate your understanding as we completed the investigation.
Concord Community Schools will be closed Wednesday, September 14th. Last night we received a threat of violence directed at Concord High School. We are working with law enforcement to assess the threat. Erring on the side of caution, in order to ensure the safety of our students and staff, we are going to close school on Wednesday, September 14, 2022. We will work with law enforcement today to move the investigation forward and take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of our school community. We will provide an update later today. Please check your emails for more information.
