Saints Parents, Students, and Community Members, Today, September 21, 2022, a number of Minnesota Law Enforcement agencies received “active shooter” phone calls at their local high school. The high schools followed their procedures and protocols for this type of emergency. Thankfully, there were no active shooters within these high schools. Unfortunately, these phone calls are part of a national trend of “hoax” phone calls of active shooters in schools, referred to as “Swatting.” There is an ongoing FBI investigation into these phone calls. St. James Public Schools has procedures and protocols that will be followed in the event that this were to happen in St. James. St. James Public Schools, St. James Police Department, and Watonwan County Sheriff’s Department have a strong working partnership and will work together in these types of situations. As a school district, we will communicate with families using our Infinite Campus communication system. The Health, Safety, and Welfare of each individual in St. James Public Schools is a top priority of the school district. As a community of Lifelong Learners, we wanted to make sure our families and community members were aware of this national issue affecting our schools. In Saints pride, Dr. Steven Heil, Superintendent
