Vernon Independent School District's Superintendent is speaking out following rumors of threats and a hit list made by a student.

On the district's Facebook page, Superintendent Jeff Byrd released this statement Saturday saying student safety is Vernon ISD's top priority.

Superintendent Byrd says they're investigating this matter and have taken appropriate action to ensure that students and employees are safe.

He adds the district is in communication with police and have determined there is no credible threat.
