“The district has been made aware and understands that many in the community have become aware that a student from Harleton Jr. High allegedly made a ‘hit list’ and is suspected of making a terroristic threat,” Harleton ISD Superintendent Craig Coleman said in a statement.
“The district is confident that there is no current threat and that our schools are safe. As always, the safety and security of our students and employees is of the highest priority, so we are taking this matter very seriously.”
The release further said the district is continuing to investigate.
Coleman said on Thursday he is unable to release the name of any student or students involved due to their minor age and he can also not comment on any disciplinary action of any student.
“Safety is our top priority and we will continue to work to provide safety for our students and staff,” Coleman said.
Coleman said notices were posted to parents on the district’s website, Facebook page and an email was sent to junior high school parents.
