The Keokuk Police Department continues to investigate a shooting at Keokuk High School Thursday night.
The Keokuk School Board has authorized the district to apply for up to $50,000 from the Iowa Department of Education for a "life-safety" project.
The Keokuk School District is increasing security at its high school, based on a possible online threat.
Navigating a short stretch of Middle Road, between Keokuk High School and the student parking lot, can be very difficult after school or during special events.
Principal Larry Frakes says parents and visitors pull their vehicles into areas where parking is prohibited and leave them for extended periods of time.
He told the city council, Thursday night, that it has reached the point where a student was recently struck by a vehicle while crossing the street.
Students at Keokuk High School will get a few extra days of summer vacation.
The school board has agreed to move the first day of school for high schools students from August 30 to September 4.
The delay will give crews additional time to work on the renovations to the high school.
The first day of school will remain August 30 for elementary and middle school students.
High school students will make up the lost days by attending classes on days previously designated for parent/teacher conferences.
