Granbury school officials have become aware of a rumor regarding an alleged threat to the security at Granbury High School.
In cooperation with the Granbury police department, we are actively investigating this matter.
All next week, we will have extra law enforcement officers at the high school campus to provide extra security for our students and staff.
Although these rumors may not be confirmed, we take seriously any threat against our schools - whether it is real or a prank. We also continue to encourage students to report suspicious behavior and rumors to the police department or district staff, and we will investigate each report that we receive.
We understand that rumors such as this causes a high level of anxiety and speculation as to the truth – especially given the tragic events in Connecticut on Friday. Please know that the highest priority of Granbury ISD is the safety and security of our students and staff.
I know that this information may not answer all of your questions, but we have a responsibility to report facts and not to extend rumors.
Like you, many of our district and campus staff have children in our local schools, and we all expect a safe and secure environment. We take very seriously the charge we’ve been given to protect our students and staff, and we will continue to monitor this situation closely.
