Additional Law Enforcement Officers will be present at Cannon County High School on Thursday, January 5th, 2023. 

Director of Cannon County Schools – William Freddy Curtis stated, “Every threat is taken seriously, even perceived ones. We appreciate the efforts of Principal Courtney Nichols and local Law Enforcement to investigate ANY threat.  Please know that we place a priority on school safety, and we investigate all reports of threats made against schools. We ask that parents please speak to their children about the importance of not spreading false information about threats. Doing so causes nothing but panic and disruption to the educational environment.  Any person that is found to make a threat regarding ANY of our schools will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Working together we desire to have the best possible learning environment and climate.”
