Parents, students, and employees notified about email threat

April 21, 2014

This message is to inform you that within the past few days area agencies became aware of a threat being made toward a San Antonio-area elementary school. The threat was not specific to any particular school, but did allude to possible violence being committed on the morning of April 24. While this may well be a hoax, we have to treat the threat seriously.

This morning, police chiefs from area school districts met with SAPD and state and federal law enforcement agencies to discuss a collaborative and coordinated approach. San Antonio's Regional Intelligence Center (SARIC) and the FBI are evaluating the validity of the threat and tracing its source.

In the interim, security is being heightened by all area agencies. San Antonio Police, Northside Police, the Bexar County Sheriff's Dept., and the FBI are all working to safeguard our students and staff.

The safety of your children is our priority and therefore this collective response will continue and all information will be shared with parents and staff as it becomes available. 

We ask that anyone with information about this situation or anything suspicious in nature be directed to 210-225-TIPS (8477).
