Vandercook Lake Public School Community: On Wednesday, January 8th, school administrators were informed of a possible threat to the middle/high school.  This report came to the administration after school had dismissed for the day. The administration immediately notified the Jackson County Sheriff’s office and started to conduct an investigation into the matter.    Through a collaborative investigation, the identity of the student responsible for making the statement has been verified.  The district has been notified by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department that the student who made the original statement has been detained as a precautionary measure as the investigation continues.   With the student currently under the direct supervision of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, it has been determined that the Vandercook Lake Public Schools will be open tomorrow, Thursday, January 8th, 2020. Parents and students may notice an additional police presence at the start of school.  The additional police presence was requested by the school district. I want to assure our community that we take these types of threats seriously and that the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority.

A great story to share. A parent whose child enlisted in the Navy was hoping to have banners hung on McDevitt Ave. to honor her son and five other 2019 graduates that are now in the Navy serving our country. When the utility poles on McDevitt were deemed as not an option she asked the schools if she could hang the banners at our school. The banners were hung yesterday through the generous assistance of Johnson Sign (Mr. Jim Johnson) and Mr. Kevin Hull. We hope this will serve as a reminder of all the Jayhawks who are currently serving our country in the different braches of the military. #JayhawkStrong #BelieveAchieveSOAR

A message from the Superintendent: Vandercook Lake Community, this afternoon 911 officials contacted our district that there was a possible threat in the community and advised our buildings to go into lockdown as a precautionary action. When we received the call from 911, Townsend Elementary had just been dismissed and the busses were headed on their routes Bus drivers were directed to head to the Middle Schoool gymnasium to drop off our elementary students until further notice. Shortly after the final bus was unloaded, the district was notified by 911 officials that the lockdown could be lifted. Details were shared that the initial report turned out to not be true and the students were never in any danger. Students were quickly loaded back onto their busses and delivered home somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes later than their usual time. As the Superintendent, I was proud of how our staff handled the situation. Parapros, secretaries, bus drivers, administration and professional staff all delivered during this situation to ensure that the students in our care were safe and comforted during these tense moments. I am so proud to call myself a Jayhawk and to be a part of such a wonderful group. Great Job Jayhawks!

Hello Jayhawk families. We were notified by the Jackson Police Department after school today of possible suspicious activity in our area. As a precaution, both Townsend Elementary and the middle/high school went into a lockdown. As a precaution, all elementary busses were routed to the middle school gym until the information was received from our police department. After securing the area, the police notified our administration to lift the lockdown due to the fact that it was a FALSE REPORT. All elementary students who ride a bus are currently being safely transported home at this time. Busses will run 30 to 40 minutes behind. As always, our students and staff safety are our number one concern here at Vandercook Lake. Thank you for your patience.
