Incident Following D-G-F Fire Drill


Following a fire drill Monday at D-G-F’s elementary and middle school, it was reported by students and staff that a neighbor of the school was holding a firearm standing in her doorway watching the drill in progress.

According to a news release from the school district, Dilworth Police and the School Resource Officer were called to assist in the investigation of the potential threat. Law Enforcement responded to the resident’s house to continue with the investigation and to speak with the resident.

As a result of the conversation, the information from students and staff was confirmed. Clay County Attorney’s Office was called and at this time no charges have been filed in this case

“We are aware of the numerous social media posts that have been posted prior to and after the event,” the statement says. “DGF Schools has made changes to their evacuation procedures to prevent any similar incidences in the future.”
