TISD officials investigating threat posed against the school, students and staff


According to a statement issued by Texarkana Independent School District, Texarkana ISD and Texas High School are aware of the threat posed against the school, students and staff based upon writings found in the bathroom and on a desk.

“We are currently investigating the situation and interviewing students who possibly have an association with this threat,” Said Tina Veal-Gooch. “Although it is believed to be a prank, student safety is of the utmost importance. As our investigation continues today, we will update you with information on our findings.”

UPDATE – According to Veal-Gooch, “Based upon our investigation, we have concluded that the threat was indeed a prank and all evidence shows there is no viable, credible threat against our students and school for Wednesday, March 8 or thereafter. Texas High School will have increased police presence on the campus and our safety protocols will be enforced for the remainder of the week.”

Communication on our follow-up has been sent to all Texas High School Parents/Guardians who we have emails on and has also been placed on our facebook page. If you should need anything further, just let me know.
