Threat Locks Down Three AISD Campuses
The Amarillo Independent School District temporarily locked down three campuses on Tuesday afternoon.
AISD officials received a report that some juveniles were waiting off-campus to fight with a student at Travis Middle School as class was being dismissed.
Officials had a concern that one of the individuals might be armed.
Both Travis schools and Whittier Elementary were placed on a temporary lockout while Amarillo Police searched for the suspects.
Police lifted the lockdown after they felt there was no longer a threat.
Amarillo ISD said in a statement:
Safety is always the highest priority, and this situation serves as a good reminder for parents, students, and staff members that if you see something suspicious or concerning, to always say something about it.
