Tuesday Orangefield High School Administrators were made aware of a student that made an inappropriate statement to another student regarding a threat to the school. The student was immediately removed from the educational setting and law enforcement was contacted.
The school district takes any form of threat to school safety very seriously and thus acted immediately. The district is cooperating with law enforcement and will continue to do so if and when criminal penalties are initiated. Additionally, the district will swiftly enforce penalties outlined in the student code of conduct and/or Texas Education Code for any substantiated violations.
The district has contacted all students and parents involved in the situation or with knowledge of the circumstances.
