WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) -

WFISD threat policies

Parents of Hirschi High School students took to social media Monday to voice their concerns about an incident at the campus earlier that day.

Wichita Falls ISD officials confirmed police investigated a threat at the campus on Monday and found the threat not credible.

District officials said the high school students were never in danger and that is why parents received an automated call at the end of the day.

Superintendent Michael Kuhrt said they take all threats seriously and investigate them [threats] with the help of local authorities.

“At any point in time we might be dealing with a situation, but parents might not be notified right then because we are dealing with the situation and it’s been taken care of. Their students are going about their normal day, and their schedule hasn’t been changed. When we have dealt with the situation then we can notify the parents,” said Kuhrt.

Kuhrt said with these situations they have to take them case by case. Each one may handled a little differently. He said once the situation is under control, then they can determine who is notified and when.

That includes both staff and parents. WFISD officials said student safety is a priority and they do have a comprehensive security plan they follow in situations like Monday’s threat.
