Update on the safety issue at McKinney High School
Thank you to all of you who inquired about the safety of our MHS students. These situations are never easy to handle, and I appreciate your patience while we worked in collaboration with the McKinney Police Department and the MISD Central Office on this issue. Today we did have an increased police presence on our campus, and we will continue with an increased police presence to remind students that we take ALL comments related to student safety seriously. However, with that being said, we do not believe there is/was any real risk to student safety because, as I stated in my earlier letter, we do believe this is a hoax that gained traction due to social media.
We will continue to work with law enforcement officials on their investigation, and we are thankful to have a proactive police department that supports our community. Rest assured, they will deal with the perpetrator of this threat to the fullest extent of the law. My goal everyday remains unchanged, creating a environment that is safe and conducive for student learning. Thank you again for your concern for our students and your children.
