KAHOKA – An employee of the Clark County School District has been placed on a 24-hour hold at the Clark County Jail after allegedly making a terroristic threat at the Clark County Middle school.
According to a press release from the Clark County Sheriff’s office a threat was discovered on the morning of Oct. 25 in a stall in the girls restroom. The threat read “I’m going to kill everyone at this school today”. The threat resulted in all Clark County School’s being cancelled.
On the morning of November 1, 2018 the Clark County Sheriff’s Office arrested Amanda Joy Miller, age 38 of Kahoka Missouri following a thorough investigation by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. She was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a hold with no formal charges as of this publishing.
In a statement from Superintendent Richie Kracht, said Miller is no longer employed with the district and school officials notified law enforcement immediately upon discovery of the threat.
“Nothing is more important than the safety and security of students, staff, and others in our schools. Threats, regardless whether accompanied by actual intent or completion, are inconsistent with both safety and security. Therefore, the prompt response to this situation was essential and deeply appreciated,” Kracht wrote in the statement.
“We are committed to providing the students and staff of the Clark R-I School District with the best learning and working environment possible.”
