The Schertz Cibolo Universal City ISD is promising a strong presence of police and school officials at Clemens High School today, after the district said in an e-mail to parents that a 'threat' was found written in a girl's bathroom on Friday, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The district didn't elaborate on the nature of the threat, or whether it was specific people or general violence that was threatened.
The district said the stepped up police presence will happen 'even if the statement is not deemed credible.'
"We believe a safe, secure, and supportive environment is paramount to learning; therefore the safety and security of our students and staff is our utmost priority," the district said. "We continue to urge our staff, students, and community to remember, if you see something, say something."
Threatening violence against schools has become an outlet for frustrated students in recent years, as several local school districts have been hit by phony threats. In many of the cases, the students involved have been identified and have faced serious criminal charges.
No word from S-C-UC whether the person who wrote the threat on Friday has been identified.
