IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SPRING ISD --- Social Media Hoax

Dear Spring ISD Parents and Guardians:

We have been made aware of a social media hoax made toward school districts and campuses across the state, including several Spring ISD campuses. Although this was determined to be a hoax and we will have school tomorrow, please know that we have taken precaution with extra security at our campuses.

We ask parents and students to confirm facts and be cautious of what they share via social media, although we do appreciate students and parents alerting our Spring ISD Police Department to potential threats.

As you know, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Be assured that the Spring ISD administration and Spring ISD Police will continue to monitor this matter.

Thank you for your continued support.

Although this threat is said to be a hoax, there will be extra security on all campuses.
