The safety of students and staff members is of utmost importance in schools, and any threat to this safety should be taken seriously. The Uvalde CISD Police and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) have been made aware of a text message and social media post referencing a possible threat to schools in the Uvalde CISD and Eagle Pass communities. The UCISD Police are working closely with the Southwest Texas Fusion Center (SWTFC) and DPS to investigate the origins of the text message and social media postings that have been circulating.

Although it is regrettable to send out such notices to parents, it is critical to keep them informed, even if the threat turns out to be a hoax. The school district cannot afford to take any chances and must always err on the side of caution. As the one-year date approaches, it is expected that social media threats may increase, and therefore, the Uvalde CISD and local law enforcement agencies will remain vigilant in and around the campuses with heightened awareness for the safety of all students and staff members.

The district will not dismiss any threat, and if the authors of the messages are found, the district will pursue criminal charges to the fullest extent. Additionally, the Uvalde CISD and law enforcement agencies will continue to monitor social media for alarming, concerning, and threatening posts. The safety of students and staff members is everyone’s responsibility, and continued diligence is necessary to ensure a safe school environment for all.

The Uvalde CISD Administration has also been made aware of a video circulating of an individual with a gun, which originated in the Del Rio community. The SWTFC and local law enforcement are investigating the creator of the video. As investigations into these threats continue, it is important to remain calm and report any suspicious activity to the authorities.
