The Kerrville Independent School District released a statement Monday saying that school authorities found a “copy cat” note written on a bathroom wall at Hal Peterson Middle School.
After a brief investigation, school administrators and the Kerrville Police Department were able to identify the author and state there was no credible threat of violence.
Monday’s announcement comes on the heels of a student discovering a threatening note in a bathroom stall at Tivy High School, which contained a threat of violence that was set to occur at Tivy High School at 2:35 p.m. on Thursday, March 31.
According to KISD Superintendent Mark Faust, that investigation is ongoing, but authorities were able to determine that there was no credible threat of violence at the school.
KISD is asking parents to communicate with their children and reminding them that their words and actions can have significant repercussions and consequences.
Actions that threaten violence, fear, or harm to others are addressed subject to KISD’s student code of conduct and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
