Town Meeting Set for Friday to Discuss Doniphan School Threats

DONIPHAN, MO - The Doniphan R-1 School District in southeast Missouri will host a public forum Friday evening to discuss recent tensions and threats in the district.

Classes were canceled at Doniphan for two days (Thursday and Friday) last week after a bomb threat was made, as well as other tensions.  Classes resumed on Monday of this week, and superintendent Kevin Sandlin said attendance this week has been approximately 93 percent, which he called "normal."

Sandlin said the school does have additional security on-campus this week as a precautionary measure.  A bomb-sniffing dog was also on-campus on Monday.

Friday night's meeting is set for 6 p.m. at the DHS gymnasium.
