Westville School District is a partner in the Vermilion County STEP-UP coalition - that has worked hard to support three main initiatives in the county: Family/Parenting, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse. STEP-UP received recognition from the Governor's Hometown Award commission on November 14, 2019 for this work. Events like the Tim Ryan speaking event on the opiod crisis and the Kevin Hines event on suicide awareness are just two ways the district has helped support the STEP-UP mission to transform lives in Vermilion County. Over 200 county leaders and volunteers are part of this coalition. Search STEP-UP Vermilion County to see how you can partner with a great group of community leaders. #itsagreatdaytobefromtheVC #livesofpurpose

This is a message from Westville School District... Shortly before noon today, Westville High School was made aware of an alleged threat to school safety. School administrators immediately notified local law enforcement, who responded rapidly and investigated. Local police report that, after investigating, they are confident that neither students nor the school were in danger at any point, and that they are confident they have addressed and contained the situation. The school district would like to thank the Westville Police Department for their swift response in both the investigation and action to confirm and protect student safety. Out of an abundance of caution, we have asked for additional police visibility around the school for the next couple of days.

Teachers will go over age appropriate procedures on how to respond. Special considerations have been made for younger students to minimize anxiety.

Earlier today just before noon, the school was made aware of an inappropriate and threatening remark made to a district administrator. The individual who made the remark left without incident. The school district notified law enforcement out of an abundance of caution, who responded immediately and ensured the building was safe and secure. There was no disruption to the educational day, but there has been a visible presence of police forces since the incident. To further assure the school remained safe, officials initiated shelter in place procedures as they have been trained to do. Law enforcement officials have assured administration the schools are and remain safe, and while their investigation continues, that they have apprehended the suspect, who is innocent of any crime unless and until proven otherwise. Please do not be alarmed over the next couple of days as we do expect there will be a more visible presence of law enforcement. Westville School District is extremely appreciative of the instant and overwhelming response by law enforcement to ensure student safety at all times.
