Classes Canceled At Frisco ISD High School After Social Media Threats – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Classes were canceled Monday at a high school campus in Frisco following threats on social media over the weekend, according to school district administrators.
All Monday classes and events at Lone Star High School in the Frisco Independent School District have been canceled “to best ensure the safety of our students and staff,” the district said in a statement to NBC 5.
The shutdown follows reports received on Sunday of a threat against the school on social media on Friday, the district said. A second threat was received by email on Sunday evening.
“There is currently no evidence to support the credibility of the social media threat,” wrote Lone Star High School principal Keith Tolleson in an email to parents obtained by The Dallas Morning News.
When classes resume, students will not be allowed to bring their backpacks for the entire week, reports The News.
The Frisco Police Department is on the Lone Star campus to investigate the origin of the threats.
“The safety and security of students and staff is of the utmost importance to Frisco ISD,” the district said. “For the moment, only Monday classes are canceled, but more information regarding the resumption of classes will be communicated as soon as possible.”
Students and parents who have information about the social media post or threat letter are asked to call Frisco Police at 972-292-6010. Anonymous tips can be submitted by texting the word “FriscoPD” and tip information to 847411 (tip411). All students and staff are also encouraged to use the anonymous STOPit app to report any issues to school officials.
