Update on School Safety Measures

As part of the district’s on-going planning and work on security measures in our schools, Frankfort CUSD #168 continues to use various strategies and actions each day to keep everyone alert and aware of

potential incidents that could happen.  One of those random strategies and actions may involve searching with metal detectors.

Today, Frankfort Community High School is conducting searches with metal detectors as students are entering school.  School staff was joined by members of the West Frankfort Police Department in our on-going partnership to keep our schools safe and assist us in conducting the searches.  There has been no active threat to the schools of the district today.  Please be aware that we continue to ask our students and their families to report any concerns or information they may have.  We will investigate information that we receive to its conclusion to insure the safety of our students and our staff.

            This school district continues its emergency assessment and planning as we all ask ourselves across this community and across this nation what needs to be done to prevent future school incidents.
