Rumors of lockdown at McCulloch untrue

Posted on Apr. 11 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Questions have arisen over rumors of a threat made at McCulloch on Thursday, April 10, 2014. Administrators investigated immediately, and a student was suspended. Measures have been taken to make sure that there is no threat to the safety of the students at McCulloch today, Friday, April 11, 2014. We do have one of our school security officers on hand today at the building. At no time did we believe students and staff were in danger. We are committed to a safe and healthy learning environment and would not bring students or staff into a situation we believed to be unsafe.

McCulloch is in normal security mode today, with all doors locked and the buzz-in and visitor badge system in place, as it is every day. The building is NOT in elevated lockdown mode. There is no reason to believe the safety of students and staff is in any way threatened.

As always, we ask anyone who knows anything that threatens the safety of our students or schools to contact school or district administrators. Our anonymous student/school safety hotline is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call or text 765-997-8585 or email hotline@marion.k12.in.us.

Attendance Matters!

Homework Hotline offers help with math, science

The Homework Hotline is back! Students in grades 6 through 12 can get help with math and science homework from this service of Rose-Hulman University.

Rather than giving the answers, Hotline tutors help students develop better problem-solving skills so they can learn how to work through similar problems on their own and prepare for exams. The Hotline is available every Sunday through Thursday now through May, from 7 to 10 p.m.

Last year, Homework Hotline tutors answered more than 45,000 calls and more than 2,900 online requests.

Students who call will only be asked to give their first name and the name of their school. They should have the following items handy before calling:
  • Homework assignment
  • Textbook (if available)
  • Paper
  • Pen or pencil
  • Calculator (if needed)
Helpful math and science resources are also available on the website. Click the picture below for more information, or to submit a question for tutors online.
