Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District has heightened security at several school campuses after rumors began circulating recently of threats at Saginaw, Boswell and Chisholm Trail high schools.
The school district said the district learned of threats late last week and that they have worked with law enforcement to investigate each and every report received. Officials said no "evidence to substantiate the original rumor, or any rumors thereafter" has been found.
The district said it will continue to take the rumored threats seriously and that students should report any information they have to school staff.
The following letter was sent home to Saginaw High School families:
Dear SHS Families,
I am contacting you today to address rumors that are circling regarding the safety and security of our campus. Late last week, we received a report regarding an alleged threat to the security of the campus. In partnership with Saginaw Police Department and our administrative team, we have thoroughly investigated this report and have been unable to substantiate any of the details.
Even though these rumors are so far unsubstantiated, we are taking additional precautions to insure the safety of our students and staff. We have increased the presence of our staff in our hallways and at lunch. For the time being, we are also implementing additional security measures inside and outside of the school.
I will be communicating with our staff and students to reassure them of our actions regarding this situation. If you still have concerns about the safety of your student, please contact your house office staff (see below).
Even though we are not able to validate the facts provided, we take very seriously the charge we’ve been given to protect our students and staff and continue to monitor this situation closely.
Saginaw HS Principal
