On Saturday afternoon the IWEST administration was notified of an alleged threat on social media. The Iroquois County Sheriff’s Department was immediately notified. The individual was identified and the alleged situation secured. Through the coordinated investigation by the Iroquois County Sheriff’s Department and the IWEST administration over the course of Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning it has been determined that the alleged threat has been confronted and there is no threat to student or staff safety. IWEST’s commitment to students and staff continue to be our primary focus and our intention is to be as transparent with the school community as possible. I would like to thank the Iroquois County Sheriff Department for their quick response. As a precautionary measure, additional security will be provided by the Iroquois County Sheriff’s Department at the High School building.
