The Wichita Falls Police have confirmed an active warrant for Failure to Report, a misdemeanor, has been filed for Haynes Northwest Academy Principal Cindy Underwood.

WFISD Communications Officer Ashley Thomas released the following statement;

"Cindy Underwood, Haynes Elementary principal, is currently on administrative leave. However, WFISD has not received information from Wichita Falls PD. Ms. Underwood has an excellent employment history in WFISD, and we will be doing an internal investigation to determine the next steps."
