Plainview ISD responds to alleged threatening statements made by student

PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) - Plainview school administrators released a letter to parents following alleged threatening statements made by a student Wednesday night:

Dear Plainview High School Parents / Guardians,

Last night Plainview ISD and PHS administration responded to information provided by students who informed us that threatening statements had been made by one of our students.

We take information of this nature extremely seriously and immediately notified campus security and the Plainview Police Department. The administration and police department conducted a thorough investigation and have determined that the security risk is low, but as a precaution we are continuing to keep security elevated at PHS.

PHS Administrators and the Police Department know the location of the student who made the alleged threat and consider the situation safe.

We are extremely proud of our students for being forthcoming with information and their willingness to help us maintain a safe school. We also appreciate information provided by concerned parents.

The safety and security of our students and staff remains our primary concern. Thank you for helping keep our schools safe.

According to the Plainview Herald, lines of parents were seen checking children out from the high school Wednesday morning.
