December 1, 2017

This morning just before noon, Frenship High School received a report of a firearm sighted in the building. FHS staff immediately notified campus administration, and a high-level lockdown was immediately put into place. A call to 911 was made immediately.

We are so appreciative of the Frenship ISD Police Department, the Lubbock Police Department, the Lubbock County Sherriff’s Office as well as the other law enforcement agencies who responded in protecting our students and securing our facilities.

Students were escorted out of the building and to a safe location. The building was deemed clear just before 4:00.

The work of our law enforcement officials, our students and our staff led to everyone in the building exiting safely this afternoon.

We are grateful to our parents for their cooperation this afternoon, and hope you know we connected our families together in the safest and fastest way possible.

The safety of our students is our top priority. Due to the severity of the report we received from the high school, we determined swift action was required.

Again, thank you for entrusting us with the care and education of your children.

Dr. Michelle McCord, Ed.D
FISD Superintendent
