Message from Superintendent Cantrell

Dear Parents and Guardians,


The Jasper School District is aware of the potential threat to a Kentucky and an Arkansas school being shared on social media.  As you may have seen, the Little Rock FBI office has issued a general awareness statement about information they received relating to the possibility of a school shooting in Kentucky on August 28th and Arkansas on August 29th.


The Arkansas State Police has been in close contact with the FBI attempting to identify the source of the threat.  At this time no corroborating evidence or useful details have been uncovered.


While there have been no specific threats to the Jasper School District or any of the campuses, we have been in contact with local law enforcement agencies throughout the day.  I’m confident with the plans in place.  The safety of our students and staff will remain our highest priority and we will continue to take the necessary steps to keep them safe.  


Jeff Cantrell
