Galena Park ISD bans backpacks following social media threat, ramps up security

https://www.chron.com/neighborhood/pasa ... m=referral
The threat was aimed at the North Shore 10th Grade Center and North Shore Senior High School, according to a statement from the district. Additional security will be on campus until the threat is resolved. Until then, students are prohibited from bringing backpacks to school.

The incident is currently under investigation.

"Please know we take all threats seriously out of a concern for student and staff safety, and we know seeing or even hearing about a school threat can be upsetting," the statement read. "The school and law enforcement will continue investigating this threat, and the student(s) involved will be disciplined according to the requirements of the Student Code of Conduct. All criminal acts are taken seriously, investigated completely, and addressed appropriately by the District as well as through law enforcement."

Long line at Bellaire HS as students return after shooting

https://abc13.com/long-line-at-bellaire ... g/5850016/
According to an HISD email sent to parents, all students will have to enter the school through one single-entry point.

Students will have their bags checked by Bellaire H.S. administrators and students will not be allowed to leave campus for lunch. Read the full email below:

"Good evening - I am reaching out this evening to offer updated information regarding the return of students to campus, Thursday, January 16. Until further notice, all students will enter the building through a single-entry point. This process will begin at 7:15am through the doors on Maple at the Circle Drive. Upon entry, students will have their bags reviewed by Bellaire administration. This means that all student backpacks, purses, gym bags and other bags must be opened by the student so that administrators can view the contents. We plan to host a regular class schedule including all seven class periods. During lunch we will close the campus so all students will remain on site. To support our students and staff, the HISD is sending additional counselors. Finally, we will have additional HISD Police officers and school administrators on campus as well as officers patrolling the area.
These are initial precautions and more long-term, sustainable changes are being developed by the school safety and security committee. I thank you for your continued support."
BHS has about 3500 students.

#BREAKING Injuries reported at Lonestar College, one from a panic attack, another from an anxiety attack, according to the college.
If someone made a hoax 911 call I hope the police can track them down and arrest them.

I posted this on the Another Shooting thread a bit earlier. You have more alarming details. There seems to be a new epidemic on murdering toddlers. I hope this one pulls through.

The nation’s two largest teachers unions want schools to revise or eliminate active shooter drills, asserting Tuesday that they can harm students’ mental health and that there are better ways to prepare for the possibility of a school shooting.

The American Federation of Teachers and National Education Association joined with the advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund in calling for an end to unannounced drills or drills that simulate gun violence.
