Meskwaki Settlement School under "alert status"

Posted:

TAMA (KWWL) - About one-third of the students at the Meskwaki Settlement School did not show up for school Monday. And it's not because they're sick with the flu.

School Superintendent Jerry Stephens says there are rumors going around the settlement that someone was going to come to the school and harm someone or something.

As a precaution, Stephens says the school is under "alert status" and Meskwaki Settlement Police are investigating. The school is not locked down and Stephens expects everything to be operating normally by the end of the school day.

The Meskwaki settlement is 6 miles west of Tama and Toledo.
