Dear Parents, Thank you for your cooperation and understanding with today’s threat at Yankton High School. These types of incidents put much fear into students, staff, parents, community members, and school administrators. Unless a person is on-site to see the disruption this causes within a school, it is difficult to understand the situation. I can assure you if those responsible for this threat are identified, we will pursue the full extent of the law for prosecution, along with consequences from school if those responsible are students. I appreciate the collaboration we have with our local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. My trust in these agencies is very high and know we all have the same goal in mind, which is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. The soft lockdown for our elementary schools and Yankton Middle School was lifted after lunch. Yankton High School will remain in a soft lock-down until the end of the school day. I realize my decisions made in situations like this are not agreed upon by all. However, I take my decisions very personally to do my best to keep our kids safe. I would ask that you not use social media as your source of accurate information in situations like today. I will always communicate with you as quickly as I can with accurate information. Your trust is greatly appreciated! Dr. Wayne Kindle, Superintendent
