As this school day draws to a close, the Paducah Public School District is heartbroken over the tragic event that occurred at Marshall County High School this morning. We express our deepest sympathy to the students, faculty and staff of Marshall County Schools and all of our neighbors in Marshall County.
We are grateful to the Paducah Police for their protective presence. As soon as the news broke, Paducah Police dispatched officers to our schools as a precautionary measure. Our staff and administrators in all buildings went on a coordinated, heightened alert to ensure the safety of our students.
We know that your children may be upset and anxious. Please know that our guidance counselors and counselors from Four Rivers Behavioral Health will be ready and available in the coming days to give support and guidance to our students.
