Good evening, LSR7 School Community:
Tonight, the Blue Springs School District informed its school community that it was canceling all school activities on Wednesday after receiving reports of a possible shooting threat that prompted the FBI to get involved. At this time, the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District has not received any information to suggest that this possible threat has any connection to our district.
However, out of an abundance of caution and for the safety of our entire school community, the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District will also be canceling all summer camps, before and after school services, and student activities/programming tomorrow, Wednesday, June 15. .
We are grateful to the Blue Springs School District for the steps they are taking to work with law enforcement to keep their school community safe, and we have been in communication tonight with all police departments that serve our district.
We will continue to communicate closely with law enforcement throughout tomorrow and provide you with additional information as needed.
