    Any explanation on why the school was just evacuated? I would assume it’s related?

    Another note found today. They just released high school out of caution at 2:40. Here was the email:

    Dear HPISD Parents & Staff,

    Highland Park High School will dismiss at 2:40 today. The decision was made after another suspicious note was discovered today on campus.

    We are working with police, and while we do not believe there is an imminent threat, we are dismissing early today out of caution. We ask that parents who pick up their children meet them at the usual location.

    We will continue to monitor the campus closely, and we encourage parents to talk to their children about how seriously any threats, written or otherwise, are taken on campus.

    We will continue to keep you informed.

    It was an early release – not an evacuation.

    I am a student at HPHS, we were asked to leave the building immediately and directed to exit away from the school.

    It actually was an evacuation, according to my daughter. They were advised to leave the building quickly and to move away from the school area. There were teachers at the bottom of the staircases directing them to the nearest exit. My child was pleased because her geometry teacher had a quiz ready to hand out and had to bag it!

    I have heard from other parents that the first note actually mentioned a gun being in the school and that people who had bullied the author of the note would be shot. If that is true us parents have the right to know such a horrific thing!
