Jacksonville ISD:

JACKSONVILLE (KYTX) - Jacksonville ISD administrators at West Side Elementary enacted a shelter in place this morning when gun shots were reportedly heard somewhere in the surrounding vicinity of the school. JISD administrators contacted authorities who responded and are currently investigating the origin of the disturbance.  No JISD students were in any danger, but administrators enacted the shelter in place as a precautionary measure until authorities were on the scene.

At this time, the shelter in place has been removed, and students at West Side Elementary are back on their normal schedule.

The safety of our students and staff is our primary concern at JISD, and we appreciate the cooperation and quick response of our school staff and city police departments in investigating this matter.
