Facebook page concerns Coronado High School parents; LISD says it was a hoax

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Some parents pulled their children out of class at Coronado High School on Thursday due to concerns about threats made on a Facebook page.

The district said it was a hoax and that everyone was safe. At no time on Thursday was any school in the district on lock down. The Facebook page is no longer active and the name it was under was not a student of the school. LISD authorities investigated the situation before determining there was no cause for concern.

"Our Police Department and the Lubbock Police Department were involved," said Dr. Karen Garza, Lubbock ISD Superintendent. "The site was a bogus site, there's no validity to any of the claims, and therefore the kids are safe at Coronado high school and all of our high schools today."

Garza told us they will seek charges against whoever is responsible. She says making violent threats is considered a felony offense. "One of the best deterrents from this continuing is to make sure that we respond firmly and decisively once we know who the perpetrator is," Garza said.

Coronado High School principal Lynn Akin left an automated telephone message with parents to let them know the threat was a hoax and that children were safe at school.
