This is an update on the activities at Idalou ISD. To make sure and clarify about this morning’s tweets. There was never a threat to our school. The person tweeting did not threaten the school in any way, they did bring up comments about the safety of our school and how we handle students. Since we did not know who was tweeting we contacted the Texas Rangers to investigate and this is when we posted the information addressing the tweet. The Texas Rangers have determined that there was never a threat to Idalou ISD from the individual tweeting in the context of the tweets. Once again the safety of our students and staff are our number one priority. We encourage those with concerns to come to the school and visit with our school administrators. We all need to work together to make sure our students and our schools are safe.
Idalou ISD is aware of a tweet that is being circulated concerning school safety. Idalou ISD takes school safety very seriously. All aspects of the tweet have been explored and investigated.
