Whitehouse ISD officials are aware of rumors about a threat specific to Holloway 6th grade campus. On Thursday, May 9th, several responsible students found an anonymous note on the hallway floor and immediately turned it into the campus principal. The note was barely legible and not deemed credible after an immediate investigation by school officials and law enforcement. However, WISD responded with additional security and administrative presence to ensure a safe and caring environment.
Superintendent, Dr. Chris Moran commented, “We will never place our students or staff in harm’s way and will always make safety our priority. We also recognize parents hear rumors, and in today’s environment, parents can become very anxious about the safety of their student. If there is ever a credible threat, we will notify parents and staff right away and take the appropriate action to protect our campuses.”
All schools are safe and secure and will follow regular schedule throughout the day. WISD encourages anyone with concerns to contact the district immediately and appreciates the partnership to keep our students safe.
