Important Message from Superintendent Kirby Smith

Campbellsville Independent Schools is investigating the report of another message written in a bathroom stall at the Campbellsville High School campus.


This message, like the one found last week, was not a direct threat to any student or staff member.


This afternoon, a student found a message written on a piece of toilet paper in an upstairs girls’ restroom, stating “Cville will be next.”


Campbellsville Police officers have responded to the school, and will continue to monitor the campus in an effort to provide additional security for all students, staff members and visitors.


Through the use of camera surveillance, school officials have determined which students accessed the restroom around the time of the report and are investigating to ensure those responsible receive the appropriate punishment.


The safety of all CIS students and staff members is always a top priority, and we do not take that lightly.


As a result of the recent events, school officials have made some changes to increase school security.


Additional staff members are in place at CHS to monitor class changes and movement in the hallways and restrooms.


In December, additional security cameras were installed at the Campbellsville middle and high school campuses.


Additionally, CHS students will now access the building in the mornings via the main door only. That change was implemented yesterday.


As safety is our top priority, all events like the one reported today will be investigated. These investigations require lots of time and effort, but will be done to ensure our students and staff members are safe.


However, parents, I want to urge you to talk to your children about the inappropriateness and potential consequences of writing such messages.


Students and parents who have information about the messages are urged to contact school administrators by calling the Board of Education office at (270) 465-4162 or the CHS office at (270) 465-8774.
