El Dorado Schools keeps the safety of our students and staff as our top priority. While there has been no verification of any threats against our schools, we continue to work with local law enforcement to maintain safe campuses. The El Dorado School District has security measures in place and the El Dorado Police Department will provide an increased presence at each of our schools tomorrow to support a safe learning environment for all students.
El Dorado School District has been made aware of a social media post circulating that mentions threats against unknown schools in Arkansas and Kentucky for the coming week. According to Lt. Chris Lutman, Public Information Officer for the El Dorado Police Department, the FBI office out of Little Rock has made a general awareness statement (not a warning) regarding the threats. No specific schools have been mentioned and there has been no verified threat by any law enforcement agency in the state, including El Dorado Police Department. The safety of our staff and students is our top priority. We will continue to monitor the information with local law enforcement and will do everything in our power to keep our schools safe.
An important message from Superintendent Jim Tucker: This morning on social media some people posted that there was an incident at Barton Junior High School. This is absolutely false. Things are going well at Barton today, students are in class learning and teachers are teaching. Please do not post on social media about incidents happening at a school unless you confirm it with a school administrator. Making inaccurate posts is irresponsible and can cause unnecessary panic. If there ever is an issue, we will make a post on the district website and district social media. If you have any questions, please call the district office or the school. Please DO NOT post inaccurate information. Thank you.
