Good morning River Forest, This is Randy Horka on behalf of the River Forest Community Schools, The Lake County Sheriff’s Department was contacted regarding a Tik Tok posting that is now being circulated around the United States. The LCPD Intelligence Unit has researched the origin of this post and the status of its content. The original Internet posting as a “Tik Tok Challenge, ” was for students to skip school on December 17. At some point, the challenge was changed to a school shooting threat. This posting is spreading on the internet across the USA – we are now seeing posts about it from Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, etc. Police Agencies from those States have posted saying they are investigating but at this time there is no credible threat. The river forest schools will have an added police presence tomorrow, Friday, December 17th during arrival and dismissal times. Further, I have been in contact with the Lake Station and New Chicago Police Departments and they will have added patrols around Meister, Evans, and Central Campus. As always, our school resource officers will be onsite at our buildings from bell to bell. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls basketball tryouts will take place Thursday and Friday from 6-8 in the middle school gym. Girls MUST have a physical on file in order to participate.
