A third school also involved is remaining open. That school is Fort Zumwalt West Middle School. O'Fallon, MO police are patrolling around the school.

Heads up for drivers heading into and out of downtown this weekend. I-64 will be closed in both directions between Jefferson Avenue and Hampton starting at 8pm Friday night.
The Jefferson Avenue bridge over the highway will also close at 1 am Friday, as MoDOT crews work to remove the bridge and replace it.
The Jefferson Avenue bridge is more than 50-years old. It will be replaced with a wider, more well-lit bridge with wider sidewalks and bike lanes.
Eastbound traffic along Highway 40 will be forced to exit at Hampton Avenue and take I-44 into the city.
Westbound traffic will be diverted onto the 2100 Market Street exit and then onto Forest Park Parkway.
All ramps and lanes are schedule to be opened by 5am Monday. And don't worry about the weather: MoDOT says the work will be done rain or shine.
