NISD statement regarding student safety

December 14, 2012

In light of the horrific school shooting in Connecticut today...

While there is no indication that this is anything but an isolated incident in a state far from Texas, Northside ISD is very sensitive to concerns and questions from parents about our own crisis procedures. 

Northside staff members do everything they can to keep children safe and secure, from practicing lockdowns to having crisis plans in place. If an emergency message needs to be sent from a school to parents, it will be done through the School Messenger system. 
To keep our schools safe, we need help from parents and other community members who are the eyes and ears in the neighborhoods. 
Please report any information you might have about a real or perceived threat to student safety to the District's 24-hour anonymous tip line: 397-SAFE. NISD Police will follow all leads.
