HPHS Evacuated After Threatening Note Found
Well, it looks like the pranksters are back. We just learned that Highland Park High School was evacuated at 11 a.m. this morning after yet another threatening note – the fourth since last month – was found.
I spoke with the district’s communications office who confirmed the notes existence, but the contents and location where it was found have not been disclosed yet.
The school sent an email to parents informing them of the incident and encouraging them to discuss the severity of threats.
“HPISD leaders will continue to work with police to investigate the threat,” the email said. “Last month, three similar notes were found at HPHS. Parents, please talk with your children about how seriously any threats, written or otherwise, are taken on campus.”
University Park police Capt. Holman said that officers are investigating the incident now, and we’ll post updates here as soon as we get them.
Update: HPISD spokeswoman Helen Williams told me that this note was found in the boys’ bathroom – like the three previous notes.
