Additional security will patrol Keller High School after a reported threat targeted on-campus rallies Friday.
According to a letter issued to parents, Keller Independent School District officials received a report saying an act of violence would take place Friday at either the pep rally or during a student-organized walkout.
The pep rally has been canceled, the letter said. Dr. Michael Nasra, Keller High School Principal, asked students to remain in their classes and not participate in the walkout planned Friday morning.
