EUREKA, Mo. – Eureka High School sent out an email to warn parents of the changes to school security Tuesday night.
And those changes took effect Wednesday morning. There were only two entrances open between 6:15 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. and all other doors and a gated fence will now be locked.
District officials said there has been no “credible threat" and there is no reason for panic. But, they said in light of what happened in Florida, they were taking extra precautions.
This also comes on the heels of another district wide email that came out Monday from Superintendent Eric Knost.
"We take everything seriously, it depends on the information we are getting, and what's it about. What can we investigate and what do we know about the people involved. We get calls constantly,” he said.
Knost said there are no credible threats at Eureka High School and they will not comment about and student suspensions or disciplinary actions.
