From Poteet ISD Facebook page:
Today at approximately 11:20 a.m. a Poteet HS student received a threatening text message from a phone number that was determined by law enforcement to be a spam phone number. Poteet HS implemented their crisis plan immediately.
Poteet ISD Police, Poteet City Police, Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office Administration, Criminal Investigation Division, Special Operations Unit, Constable Precinct 3, and the FBI were contacted and responded immediately. All District Schools were placed on lock down and the district perimeter was secured by Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office.
All students and staff remained safe during the lock down which was lifted once it was determined that there was no longer a threat.
We encourage all students, parents, and community members to report any and all threats to campus or district administration immediately. In order to minimize panic, please refrain from sharing social media posts that relate to threatening information.
Thank you for your continued support in making the safety of Poteet ISD our top priority.
