It was amazing to have students in the building today. As I walked through the buildings it was awesome to hear learning, discussion, project based work, etc. occurring despite limited access to technology. We genuinely appreciate your patience as we work in coordination with ISD to get all systems completely back up and on line. Things went well today. There were no major issues with core systems. The ISD has shared a video with additional updates on the ongoing investigation and restoration process. https://vimeo.com/772192949 We will be continuing “no tech” classes tomorrow, but students and staff should bring all school issued devices back to school tomorrow in a powered down state. We hope to begin the next step in the restoration process and that requires all devices to be in the buildings.
Concord Schools will be open tomorrow!! We are very grateful to our ISD team which worked around the clock to restore our key systems literally in record time- phones, heat, and security will be up and ready to go. With that, we will be operating with limited systems. Students and staff will not be able to access devices, email, PowerSchool, and/or google drive tomorrow. Each group of the school community will be notified when their device and accounts can be restored. They should not attempt to do so until that time. As these ancillary systems are restored, we will send out a notification. All contact to district staff must be done through the office phone systems. We want to thank our students, families and employees for doing their part in the ongoing recovery and we appreciate your patience and understanding. We understand there may be additional questions surrounding this incident, however the investigation into the incident remains ongoing. The ISD will continue to focus on our restoration efforts and we will provide additional updates as appropriate.
Concord Schools will, unfortunately, remain closed on Wednesday, November 16. While the ISD has made tremendous progress on our restoration efforts since our last update, we still have some work to do to ensure every system is safe and secure before bringing them back online. The security of our learning environment is a top priority and any attempt to rush this process could unfortunately put our networks at additional risk.
Concord Schools will be closed again tomorrow. The network outage is continuing to impact our operating systems and the ISD will need more time to restore those systems safely. We continue to ask our students and staff to not use their school devices. As we have more information, we will share it with you.
We are currently experiencing a network outage. We will be closing school tomorrow. This is a day off school work; the ISD is working hard to get things up and running. Please refrain from using your school devices. All systems are down. As soon as we have an update we will be sure to share it with 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.
