Similar to other school districts across the nation this week, NISD has seen an increase in threats and allegations posted on multiple social media platforms. The current trend involves threats specifically for Friday, Dec. 17.
Some of these threatening posts have identified specific campuses while others are more general. In all cases, campus administrators, Northside ISD Police, and other local agencies investigate each instance in an effort to determine the credibility of the threat as well as to determine the individual(s) responsible.
While officials have been able to deem the threats referencing NISD schools not credible, District staff and Northside ISD Police will remain vigilant in keeping students and staff safe.
Individuals found to be responsible for these types of threatening and disruptive social media posts will be subject to disciplinary, and possibly criminal, action. We hope that parents will have conversations with their children to remind them to report anything that they believe to be a threat to the safety of their campus immediately to a school administrator. These can also be reported anonymously to the NISD Police Department through the District’s Safeline at 210-397-SAFE (7233).
As always, the safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance.
