Fort Knox Police responded to Fort Knox Middle High School this afternoon (Sept. 27) after a report of an anonymous call to a hotline alleging that a student intended to commit self-harm. The school was immediately locked down with safety protocols initiated. All students and staff are safe and accounted for, and Fort Knox Police have determined that there is no immediate threat to the school community. Students will be released at normal time through the school’s front entrance. There may be some impacts to end-of-school dismissal procedures as Fort Knox Police and school officials complete safety protocols. Everyone’s patience is requested. Buses for elementary school pick-ups may be delayed.
