Classes in 2 Rural Kansas Districts Canceled

Classes have been canceled in two rural western Kansas school districts because of law enforcement situation at a home.

South Gray High school principal Tim Skinner says classes are canceled Monday in the Montezuma and Copeland school districts. The Gray County sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post that deputies and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation are working on “resolving a situation with a subject in a residence.”

Skinner says the residence is near the high school and elementary school in Montezuma. The two districts share a junior high and high school and busing services. They have a combined enrollment of about 240 students.

The sheriff’s office provided no additional information. Kansas Bureau of Investigation Senior Special Agent Mark Malick didn’t immediately return an email message from The Associated Press.
