Bandera ISD, along with Bandera County Sheriff’s Department, are aware of the social media post threatening an adjacent county and continue to monitor the situation. BCSO has been in contact with our neighboring law enforcement to obtain information and will be following the concern closely.
From the information gathered at this time, it appears it does not involve Bandera County, nor does it involve Bandera ISD students. The threat appears to be unsubstantiated and more along the lines of rumors that are being spread through social media outlets.
In an abundance of caution, Bandera ISD is informing the community so that parents know the school district is monitoring this concern.
With the approach of the Uvalde tragedy anniversary, schools and Local Law Enforcement agencies have been preparing for the possibility of more people wanting to scare and disrupt schools.
Bandera ISD wants all residents to know that they will not dismiss any threat and will ensure that staff is vigilant to ensure the safety of everyone in the District's schools and buildings.
"We thank our students, staff, parents and community for always watching out for our schools and reporting any incidents that might affect Bandera ISD.", said Bandera ISD Superintendent Gary Bitzkie in the statement.
