3 El Paso School Districts Dealing With Threats Of Violence Against Students

Tomorrow marks a week since 20 children and 6 adults were gunned down in an elementary school in Connecticut.  That tragic day has the schools in the nation on high alert, and El Paso schools are no different.

KTSM is reporting that Ysleta Independent School District Superintendent Michael Zolkoski notified the district’s parents yesterday that students would be released half day on Friday because of rumors of threats of violence against students.  The district’s administration building marquee is also flashing the reminder of the early release.

El Paso Schools Dealing With Threats

A YISD spokeswoman said because safety is the district’s number one priority, they want parents to know that the district will do what is necessary to keep their children safe.

In addition to the early release, all YISD schools will be on “modified lockdown” today and tomorrow which means:

· All exterior doors, except the front door, will remain locked at all times.

· All PE and recess will be held indoors.

· All visitors are required to sign in at the front desk and get a visitor’s pass to get into the school.

· There will be continued security and police presence at all campuses.

Canutillo ISD will also follow their scheduled half day release of students on Friday.

Socorro ISD released their students on Wednesday for the winter break.

According to EPISD, YISD, and CISD officials, all three campuses will have an increased police presence on their campuses tomorrow.

If you or your child hears about a threat regarding schools or students, you are asked to notify police immediately.
