This is an informational message about a situation today at the high school.
This afternoon a bomb threat was made at RCHS.
Due to the quick action of the Rushville Police Department and School Officials an arrest has already been made in this case. This is believed to be an isolated incident with no immediate threat.
However, school safety is extremely important in this corporation; all threats to our students, staff, and schools are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. Therefore we will have extra security at the high school and at our other schools on Wednesday.
We wanted you to have the facts so you can discuss them with your child and emphasize the seriousness of the issue.
Thank you and have a good night.
Matt Vance, Superintendent
Rush County Schools
