Message from BH8 School Nurse: BHCUSD received an allotment of BinaxNow test kits that were not utilized during the 2022-23 school year. These kits can also be used as at-home test kits. We would like to "clean out the Nurse's closet" before the end of the school year and share them with our families. These BinaxNow kits have two tests per box and are limited in quantity. Kits are available one per student and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please complete the form at this link if you are interested in having a kit sent home with your student. https://bit.ly/43tB0WK

Bunker Hill CUSD #8 believes ensuring student and staff safety is its top priority. As such, the District Administration has been, and will continue to, monitor this spring weather event that has the potential for severity. However, the district also understands sending children home early to possibly empty homes present other challenges. This afternoon's weather patterns are based on a forecast that while often accurate, is admittedly limited in confidence. As a result, we will continue to monitor this wave of storm cells forecast to enter the area at an unknown time this afternoon or early evening. In the meantime, school will still be dismissed at 3:10 PM. If this should happen to change, parents will be notified via text as soon as possible.

This morning (Wednesday, 3/8) at 10:30 AM, our district conducted an unannounced K9 sweep of the BHHS campus in order to detect and deter possession of substances violating our Student Handbook and Board Policies. As you can probably understand, in order for this operation to be effective, it was impossible to notify parents/guardians in advance. K9 sweeps have always been, and will continue to be, unannounced but families will always be notified afterward. As a result of the sweep, students were asked to remain in their classrooms for approximately one hour while law enforcement conducted a very thorough search. However, at no point during the sweep did students have contact with the dogs. Although cannabis (marijuana) has been legalized in Illinois and other states, it is not legal for those under the age of 21 and it is absolutely not allowed at our schools. Today’s efforts were a coordinated effort two months in the planning, and required a significant amount of manpower, both from our own administrators at Bunker Hill CUSD 8 and our law enforcement partners at the Illinois State Police, Carlinville Police, the Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bunker Hill Police Department. Although we wish it wasn’t necessary to even consider these types of proactive measures, we are committed to ensuring that our school district remains the safe and healthy environment for our students and staff deserve. Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support of our schools.

Good Afternoon Bunker Hill 8 Families – I would like to provide families with an update regarding last night’s and this morning's school safety response: First, I would be remiss if I didn’t express my gratitude to those who helped ensure our response was appropriate and timely. Our faculty, staff, and principals did an outstanding job today ensuring that school occurred safely. Every entrance was secured, and as you probably noticed, there was a heavy law enforcement presence at both schools. We are fortunate in Bunker Hill to have such dedicated first responders, and the cooperation from Bunker Hill Police Department, the City of Bunker Hill, and the Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office was extremely thorough and professional. I would also like to thank the many students and parents who shared information with us, allowing us to properly react to the situation. Next, I would like to provide a few additional details. However, because this situation deals with a minor, and also because it involves student privacy, the District cannot and will not publicly comment on details regarding specific discipline. However, here is what we can share: -- Last evening, our District Threat Assessment team met regarding an allegedly threatening statement shared via Snapchat audio as well as screenshots taken from social media -- After meeting at approximately 4:00 PM, the Threat Assessment Team determined that it warranted referral as a threat to local law enforcement officials. -- Bunker Hill Police Department informed us at approximately 7:35 PM that the threat had been investigated, and that while further investigation was required, the school district was not in danger from a credible threat the following day Finally, I would like to inform parents that for the foreseeable future, you can expect to see an increased police presence at both schools. Safety protocols will be reviewed at each building. The District will conduct an internal investigation in order to determine appropriate school discipline in accordance with Board Policy and Student Handbooks. In the meantime, the District understands that these events can cause or increase anxiety, so any parent that wishes for their child to receive counseling is encouraged to contact your child’s building principal. In the meantime, I encourage you to talk to your children about school safety, appropriate and inappropriate behaviors, expectations, and healthy practices as well as personal communication. Any type of threat toward a school, school personnel, and students is a serious matter and will be handled accordingly either by school discipline (including suspension and/or expulsion) or charges filed by law enforcement. Again, thank you for your understanding and support. Unfortunately, these types of events, while completely unacceptable, are becoming far too common. However, we will always do whatever is needed to ensure Bunker Hill schools are the safe and secure environment that our students and staff deserve. Respectfully yours, Todd Todd Dugan, Superintendent
