Sturgeon School Building Evacuated for a Second Time in Less Than a Week Due to Threat

The Sturgeon K-8 school building was evacuated for a second time in less than a week after a threat was found yesterday (Tuesday).

All students and staff were safe and were able to get back in the building after Boone County Sheriff’s deputies, MUPD K9 dogs and other law enforcement cleared the school.

Last week on Friday, the district said a staff member reported that a threat of a bomb was written on a bathroom wall in the K-8 bulding, and out of an abundance of caution a K-9 was brought in for assistance, and the school was cleared shortly after.

Sturgeon Schools Superintendent Geoff Neill says the district is communicating to students in class that threats and the act of making threats carry severe consequences.
