Last night (Thursday, April 19), the Arcola School District shared this message on their social media:
“Dear Arcola School Community,
there was a rumor going around tonight (4.19.18) about a potential school shooting tomorrow (4.20.18) at school. The district has been working with the Arcola Police Department investigating the situation.
There is no creditable information that has led to any concern about student safety tomorrow. Again, there is NO Creditable Threat. But as a precaution we will have a police presence at school tomorrow.”
