As each of you are well aware, we experienced an unfortunate circumstance that required us to evacuate the middle school campus. First, I would like to thank each of you during this time of our investigation for your patience and understanding. Our top priority is that of safety for all students and staff of Hudson ISD.
There are many rumors circulating through social media regarding this incident. Here are the facts:
1) Students were immediately relocated to another locatio...n
2) Law enforcement were contacted and dispatched to assist our staff during this period of time
3) A bomb dog was immediately dispatched to assist in the search of the entire campus
4) We promptly notified parents using multiple forms of communication to be effective and transparent with this issue
The findings were exactly as we hoped for. Nothing was found that would justify any cause for concern, additional threat, or worry.
School will resume tomorrow as scheduled.
We would like to thank our local school police, the Hudson Police Dept, the Texas Rangers, and the Department of Public Safety for their efforts.
Again, school will resume at the regular time tomorrow morning. Thanks, and have a good night.
Urgent message from Hudson ISD:
Due to the safety of all students and staff at Hudson middle school, a decision was made to immediately evacuate the campus due to a note that was found in a Hudson middle school bathroom. The note stated “there is a bomb”. The note was not location, date, or time specific. Due to the nature of incidents such as this, we feel it is imperative to be transparent with all students, staff and parents. All middle students were evacuated to the Hu...dson Gym. Parents who decide to pick their children up early may do so at that location. Buses will run at normal times after school. No persons will be allowed to enter the middle school campus until authorities deem the facilities to be safe. Again, all precautionary measures are taken in circumstances such as this for the safety of all students and staff.
Immediate action was taken to evacuate the facilities, contact appropriate law-enforcement agencies, and to notify parents. Hudson ISD takes situations such as this seriously and will remain transparent as to the issues at hand. Thank you for your understanding.
