Superintendent addresses severity of school hoaxes
 
February 23, 2018

Dear Richardson ISD Parents,

Today at Richardson High School, two students threatened a school shooting as a hoax. The campus was placed on lockdown and the threats were investigated. Thousands of parents and students became extremely concerned, the school day was disrupted for every student and teacher, and important law enforcement and security resources were diverted to the school to ensure its safety until the threat was cleared.

Our safety and security procedures worked as intended and I’m thankful to our partners at the Richardson Police Department, and our school and district staff, for their work.

Two students have been arrested and charged with felony crimes. Their choices today will impact them for the remainder of their lives.

Parents, please know how much I care about your kids, and I urge you to please talk with them. Impress upon them the importance of working together to ensure our schools are safe. And likewise, please help them understand that actions or statements in any forum that threaten school violence, even if no harm is intended, will be met with life-changing consequences in the criminal justice system.

Thank you for helping us keep our schools safe.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jeannie Stone
Superintendent

Estimados Padres de Richardson ISD:

El día de hoy en Richardson High School, como farsa, dos alumnos amenazaron con llevar a cabo un tiroteo en la escuela. El plantel escolar fue puesto bajo un bloqueo mientras se llevaba acabo la investigación. Miles de padres y alumnos estuvieron extremadamente consternados, el día escolar se interrumpió para cada alumno y maestro, y recursos policiacos y de seguridad fueron desplegados hacia la escuela para resguardar su seguridad hasta que se eliminara la amenaza.

Nuestros procedimientos de protección y seguridad funcionaron como se había previsto y doy gracias a nuestros colaboradores del Departamento de Policía de Richardson y a nuestro personal escolar y del distrito por su trabajo.

Dos alumnos han sido arrestados y ahora enfrentan cargos graves. Sus decisiones, el día de hoy, los impactará por el resto de sus vidas.

Padres, por favor sepan cuanto me importan sus hijos, les pido que por favor hablen con ellos. Háganles saber la importancia de trabajar juntos para mantener a nuestras escuelas seguras. Asimismo, por favor ayúdenles a entender que acciones o declaraciones, en cualquier foro, que amenacen con violencia escolar, aun sin pretender hacer algún daño, serán recibidas con consecuencias que cambiaran sus vidas en el sistema penal.

Gracias por ayudarnos a mantener a nuestras escuelas seguras.

Atentamente,
Dra. Jeannie Stone
Superintendente
