All of us in the Frankfort CUSD #168 family have had our thoughts and prayers with those involved in the tragic wreck yesterday afternoon - those injured and those who lost their lives. We have continued to be in communication with both the families and with our friends at Benton Consolidated High School as we work to support each other during these past hours and in the days ahead. School will be in session on Monday, September 18, 2023, at FCHS and all of the other schools in the District. There will be counselors available during the school day tomorrow. We thank everyone for the outpouring of support for these families and our Franklin County communities as we go through the days ahead.
As a final report on the smoke situation at Frankfort Community High School - a blower motor in an HVAC unit in the ceiling of a second floor classroom on the front side of the building had an electrical failure. This caused smoke to billow out of the vent. The West Frankfort Fire Department responded, located the issue, and addressed it. They then vented the room and checked out the rest of the building. It is now secure. District staff will make repairs over the next few days. School should be in session on Monday. Students were allowed back in the building at approximately 12:50 p.m. to retrieve their belongings. Besides some buses for special needs students that did run, all other students and school buses in the District will run on their regular schedule today. Staff will remain on site until 3:30 today to assist any other students who still need to retrieve their personal items. All FCHS staff and parents should be proud of their students as they reacted appropriately and followed directions during this lunch hour event. Be proud of your Redbirds today.
Students at Frankfort Community High School will be dismissed at 12:30 today, Friday, September 15, 2023. ALL other schools in the District will be open through our regular dismissal time. A smoke incident occured with the ventilation in a second floor classroom. All students and staff evacuated safely. The West Frankfort Fire Department remains on the scene to clear the smoke and find the cause. We will have further information and a wrap up post later today. We thank everyone for their cooperation.
