Good Afternoon Flagstaff Unified School District Parents and Guardians -
Flagstaff High School and Sinagua Middle School promptly evacuated this afternoon after receiving an unsubstantiated bomb threat call into each of the front offices. Knoles Elementary and Marshall Elementary also went into a shelter in place out of an abundance of caution. All students from all four campuses were released for dismissal as normal. Sinagua Middle School’s Little Ropers were evacuated to the district administration building located at 3285 E. Sparrow Avenue, and were returned to the school.
The Flagstaff Police Department was immediately contacted, investigated the source of the call, and both buildings were cleared. We are thankful for our partnership with Flagstaff Police Department to secure the building.
FUSD has chosen to suspend the use of the AzMerit and AIMS Science Test and exercise our ability to choose the ACT test for our 11th grade students at Coconino High School and Flagstaff High School. The ACT includes assessment of English, Reading, Mathematics, and Science. For more information please read ACT Parent Letter
It has come to our attention that in complying with the “Do Not Call” Federal Act and adding the opt out information at the end of every school and district initiated automated call that there has been some confusion. If you have pressed the number 1 on your phone after the phone call has ended, you have now been removed from the call list for both your school and district wide phone calls.
If you would like to add your phone number to our call lists, using your same phone in which you opted out, please call Blackboard Connect at (855)502-7867 and follow the directions on the recording.
