An Open Letter to Northside ISD Staff and Parents From Superintendent Brian Woods: As you know, we are cooperating in an investigation with local and federal law enforcement of an anonymous threat to a San Antonio area elementary school.

While we are told that the credibility of the threat is low, we have and will continue to take it seriously.
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.
