Spring, Texas – February 21st, 2018: A Spring High School student has threatened a school shooting to take place on Friday. The threat was posted by a student on social media stating she was “going to do the same thing that happened in Florida.”
“Spring ISD police are aware and investigating a rumor regarding a threat of violence at Spring High School this upcoming Friday. We are investigating these claims but have no indication that the threat is credible. Our priority every day is the safety and security of our students.” – Spring ISD
Parents have reached out to Spring Happenings questioning why the Spring Independent School District has yet to notify them. District officials tell us that a “message is going out to parents now.”
A parent of a Spring High School student says on social media that she is on her way to get her daughter. “I would go get my kid. They are scared and rightfully so” Diana Green said in a Facebook post.
“We take all threats seriously and will increase police presence at the campus if needed.” – Spring ISD
We asked the district if the student that made the threat has been identified but they reminded us that the investigation is on-going.
Melissa Guinn-Call shared her frustrations on Facebook and said “I as so many others, don’t feel that this is being taken seriously. This is heartbreaking and terrifying at the same time. Knowledge is power and there are too many times that we are left in the dark with these situations.”
We are closely monitoring this disturbing situation and will update you as we learn more.
