LISD says threats against school are false

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Thursday evening Lubbock ISD's superintendent sent an email and an automated voice message to all parents in the district saying rumors of violence against the schools are false and that there is nothing to worry about.

The call and email went out around 6p.m. and said the following:

Parents:

We have become aware that individuals are using social media, including Facebook, to allege rumors of violence meant to disrupt school and create fear.  Law enforcement officials have investigated the claims thoroughly, and have determined that there is no credible threat. We know students and families are an important part of the solution in any situation in our schools, and they would be the first to be informed of any credible threats. We will be taking aggressive action against persons responsible for using social media to create fear.  Parents are always encouraged to contact their child's principal with any concerns. The safety of our students is our first priority. We look forward to having your child in school tomorrow to complete a very successful semester of school. Have a safe and happy holiday.

Dr. Karen Garza, Superintendent

LISD spokeswoman Nancy Sharp says there was not one specific threat made, but instead there were several rumors floating around about possible violence at the school. She says these threats are a hoax and that they will prosecute anyone that is found making false threats against the school.
