Update: Our local law enforcement has confirmed that there was NO threat to Jackson County Schools in West Virginia. After further investigation, the threat originated from an individual in Texas talking about similar named schools in our county.
Thank you for your patience regarding this matter. Have a wonderful day.
Good morning. This is Will Hosaflook, Superintendent of Jackson County Schools. Around 1:00 a.m. this morning, Jackson County Schools was notified by the State Police and the FBI Fusion center of a possible threat targeting our schools. Jackson County Schools and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department have been working throughout the night to gather information about the threat to take immediate action for today’s classes. We know that the threat found on Twitter was very vague and came from an individual in the Southwest region of the United States. However, regardless of the threat’s credibility, we feel it is necessary to inform our employees and families that we are heightening our standard safety protocols and will have an increased presence of law enforcement officers in our schools today. If information should change, I will contact you immediately.
Thank you, and have a wonderful day.
