I am writing to inform you and not to alarm you. The Hutsonville CUSD #1 has been made aware of a circulating TikTok post with a nationwide “school shooting and bomb threats for every school in the USA even elementary” that will supposedly take place on Friday, Dec. 17, 2021. The original post is general and not directed at a specific school. So far, the origins of this post are unknown and there is no indication this post is within Hutsonville CUSD #1.

This information has been shared with our district administration, school faculty/staff and local law enforcement. 

Please know that, in conjunction with local law enforcement, we will continue to monitor social media and will work on providing heightened awareness in our school. There are no indications of a known credible threat within Hutsonville CUSD #1 at this time. I am sharing this notice out of an abundance of caution and as a precautionary measure.

 As a reminder, tomorrow is an early release, 2:00 p.m., for students and the last day before Christmas Break.

 The safety of our students and staff is our priority. All safety concerns to our school or students are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly.

Here are some key points about making good decisions and easing these concerning feelings:

  • Be sure to report any concerning message you hear or see in person or online to a trusted adult, school administration or staff member, or police.
  • The Safe2Help Illinois is a 24/7 program for students to share school safety issues, find resources to get help and find encouragement to help others. Reports can be or by calling 618-563-4912.
  • Please do not promote social media rumors, instead, tell us.
  • If you feel uncomfortable about something you read, something you hear, something you see please, report it so we can do something about it.
  • Know who is connecting with your children online and set rules for social networking, instant messaging, e-mailing, online gaming and using webcams.

The Hutsonville CUSD #1 is committed to keeping our schools a safe place for learning, and we will work together to continue to keep it that way.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Julie Kraemer, 618-563-4912 if you have any questions or concerns.
