Lone Star High School in Frisco reopens after investigation of threats on social media, email
Officials at Frisco ISD are reopening Lone Star High School on Wednesday after police thoroughly investigated the campus.
Frisco’s Lone Star High School canceled classes Monday and Tuesday after it received threats.
Principal Keith Tolleson said in an email that police did not find anything suspicious on the campus.
Tolleson said out of an abundance of caution, the school is implementing heightened security measures including increased police presence, additional monitoring by the school and staff, and a restriction on large bags. Students will only be allowed to carry essential items in the school.
School administrators said the first threat was posted on social media Friday evening. The school received a second threat sent in an email on Sunday evening, according to a statement from Frisco ISD.
After consulting with police, administrators said they decided to cancel classes on Monday.
"It’s always a difficult decision to close a campus, but the safety and security of students and staff is Frisco ISD’s foremost concern," district spokesperson Jamie Driskill said in a letter to families.
This is a developing story.
