The following is a statement from the superintendent on the Stockdale Independent School District website.
Parents and Guardians,
This is Daniel Fuller, Superintendent of Schools. I appreciate your patience as you have probably been made aware of a bomb threat that was called in and isolated to our elementary campus. Moments after receiving the call, we immediately enacted our emergency operations plan and relocated students to another site. Most importantly all students, faculty, and staff are safe. At this time, we are working with law enforcement to clear the campus so that students can return. Due to the situation, we are not currently releasing students from the elementary campus. Once law enforcement has cleared the building and students have returned to the campus parents at that time can check their children out if they so choose. We appreciate your patience and willingness to work with us to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff.
