While we are in gear for Spirit week this week, don't forget the JV City Volleyball Tournament is next week!
We value our student's voices and want to hear from our high school students! 👩🏿🦱👩🏼🦱🧑🏽🧑🏿👱🏻♀️👨🏼🦰👩🏽 Students from LHS, SSHS & SHS gathered for the first official Superintendent's Roundtable meeting of the year! The roundtable meetings are guided by School Board Student Representative, Harrison Gray, as they navigate through topics. Superintendent Jennifer Gill answers questions from the students and gives insight into curriculum, upcoming programs, events and more about the District. The Superintendent's Roundtable meets the first Wednesday of every month from 3-4 p.m. (except in September). It's not too late to join!!

**UPDATE AS OF 2:27 PM** After investigating and searching the grounds, the LHS administration and Springfield Police and the Secretary of State Police who operate our security dogs have deemed the building clear and students are returning to the building to continue the school day as usual. Out of an abundance of caution we are also having all students re-enter the building through our metal detectors with law enforcement overseeing the return. This is a reminder that we, the Springfield Police Department, the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office, as well as our State’s Attorney, Dan Wright, are taking any and all threats seriously in District 186 and in Sangamon County.
We want to inform you of a phone call threat that was received today at Lanphier High School just after 12:30 pm about a possible bomb on campus. SPD and the Secretary of State police are present and have taken information about the call and have launched an investigation. District 186 and the Springfield Police enacted the established protocols to investigate the situation fully and within 15 minutes students were evacuated from the building and taken to Memorial Stadium. Two dogs trained to identify explosives were immediately deployed to the school for a thorough search which is currently underway. We also have our teams who are working on the construction surveying the grounds and all areas of construction to look for anything out of the ordinary. We fully expect the grounds to be cleared and students to return to school for learning and we will send another communication once the building has been deemed safe. We want to remind all stakeholders that this type of disruption will be investigated thoroughly and the individuals who are responsible will be held accountable for their actions.
