PARENTS, STUDENTS, AND EMPLOYEES NOTIFIED ABOUT EMAIL THREAT
Monday, April 21, 2014
Dear San Antonio SST Public Schools Community,
This message is to inform you that within the past few days, area agencies became aware of a threat being made toward San Antonio-area schools. The threat was not specific to any particular school, but did allude to possible violence being committed on or around the 24th of April. While this may be a hoax, we have to treat the threat seriously.
This morning, law enforcement executives from the area met at San Antonio Police Headquarters to discuss a collaborative and coordinated approach. San Antonio’s Regional Intelligence Center (SARIC) and the FBI are currently in the process of evaluating the validity of the threat and tracing the source.
In the interim, security is being heightened by all area agencies. San Antonio Police, Northside Police, the Bexar County Sheriff's Dept., and the FBI are all working to safeguard our students and staff.
The safety of your children is and will continue to be our top priority, therefore this collective response will continue and all information will be shared with parents and staff as it becomes available.
We ask that anyone with information about this situation or anything suspicious in nature be directed to 210-225-TIPS (8477).
