Messenger Index, serving Gem County Greetings, Tomorrow is an interesting day in the psyche of our country. We have heard of no threats or concerns toward any schools in Emmett. However, there will be a more active presence of deputies on all our campuses Friday, December 21. The District, Emmett Police, and Gem County Sheriff are choosing to be proactive and give our students and parents a sense of comfort. They will be talking with visitors and staff and may ask for your identification. All staff should wear identification tomorrow. Guests to the schools must make sure they have checked in the office and have a visitor’s badge. Please assure all you talk to that there have been no threats or concerns. It is very nice to live in a community where we all work together for the safety of our children. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the building principal or myself.

Messenger Index, serving Gem County GOVERNOR CALLS UPON IDAHOANS TO OBSERVE MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR SANDY HOOK VICITIMS Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter is asking Idahoans to take a few minutes on Friday to remember the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting who were murdered last Friday by a lone gunman in Newtown, Connecticut. The Governor acted upon a request he received from Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy. “At this time when Idahoans celebrate the spirit of the season we should take a moment to remember that many families in Connecticut are dealing with unspeakable tragedy and the reality that their family and their community has been changed forever,” Governor Otter said. “I ask that all Idahoans observe a moment of silence on Friday, December 21, at 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time to let our friends in Connecticut know they are in our thoughts and prayers, and that they are not alone in their grief.”
