Based on the information provided to us from our law enforcement partners, we will follow our regular procedure for dismissal this afternoon. If parents or guardians would like to make plans to pick up their child who normally walks or rides a bus, please contact the school office ASAP to make those arrangements.
Any after-school activities will continue as scheduled. Any changes or adjustments will be communicated directly from the sponsor or coach.
Bus drivers will be taking extra precautions this afternoon, specifically in the area surrounding Baker-Koonce and Carthage Junior High, to ensure students get inside their houses safely whenever possible. Please be patient as this may cause a slight delay on certain routes.
You may observe an increased law enforcement presence in this area during dismissal. As always, we appreciate our law enforcement partners and their commitment to keeping our Bulldogs safe.
All campuses remain secure at this time and we will continue to provide updates as they are available. Any change in today's dismissal process will be communicated by 2 p.m. on the district and campus websites and social media channels.
As a precautionary measure, all Carthage ISD campuses are currently in a soft lockdown status due to a police search for a suspect near Baker-Koonce Intermediate. Students/staff are not perceived to be in danger. Campus and district administrators will be very visible during this time and student movement will be limited while the search is underway. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to keep our Bulldogs safe. We will provide updates as they are available.
