Freedom to dismiss on time this afternoon

Freedom Elementary will be dismissing on time today, Wednesday, June 19, 2019.


Additional security and Waynesville R-VI administrators will be on site to ensure that students are dismissed safely from the building, due to the code yellow containment issued earlier today.


“Our building has remained secure throughout the day and other than recess being held inside, our routine has not been impacted,” said Todd Whalen, director of student services and the district’s safety officer. “We are being overly cautious with our increased presence during dismissal to ensure a safe environment for our students.”  


Earlier today, Freedom Elementary was put on code yellow containment based on information provided by law enforcement regarding an individual in a nearby area.


“We will continue to collaborate with law enforcement to assess the situation moving forward,” Whalen said.
