The Colony High School Parent Notice | Feb. 26

Feb. 26, 2019 

[Update 2:25 p.m.]

Parents,

The Colony Police Department has given TCHS the all clear and our campus is no longer on hold. Our students and staff are safe, and students are moving on to third period, where they will receive lunch and remain for the rest of the school day. We will also have an increased police presence on campus for the remainder of the school day. 

Again, I am proud of how our students and staff have handled this situation. We are also very appreciative of TCPD for their swift response and thorough investigation.

Please know the safety and security of our students and staff here at TCHS is my top priority. Thank you for your patience today, and as always, your continued support of our school. 

For your reference, we’ve included the emails we sent earlier today below.

Sincerely, 

Tim Baxter, Ed.D.
Principal
The Colony High School

 


[Update 1:25 p.m.]

Parents,

I want to update you on our situation on campus. We are continuing to hold students in class as The Colony Police Department investigates a social media post, which made a threat against our campus. All students are safe in their classroom and the campus is calm.

We have a plan for student lunches. Students have been allowed to use the restroom as needed.

I am proud of how our students and staff have handled this situation.

We will send a final update at the end of the day after TCPD concludes its investigation.

[10:15 a.m.]

Parents,

I need to make you aware of a situation on our campus. We are currently holding students in class as The Colony Police Department investigates a social media post which made a threat against our campus. Students are safe and will remain in first period until TCPD gives us the all clear.

Please know, we take any threat against our campus seriously, and this situation will be thoroughly investigated. Anyone suspected of making such a threat could face school consequences and felony charges in the legal system.

I am proud of the students, parents and community members who reported this concern to law enforcement and to the campus. We tell our students if you see something, say something, and they did. By working together we will ensure TCHS is a safe learning environment where all students can thrive.
