Student charged with making false report

Unrelated to the social media rumor about which the district released a statement early Friday, a La Porte High School student has been charged with making a false report with intent to cause alarm on a school campus. Upon receiving the report, the La Porte High School administration and school resource officers investigated the situation, and we were informed Friday afternoon that the Harris County District Attorney’s office had accepted the charges.

Important message about social media rumors

Late Thursday night, La Porte ISD became aware of a rumor posted on social media regarding a shooting threat at La Porte High School today. The La Porte Police Department was immediately contacted. We are working closely with the La Porte Police Department to determine the origin of this rumor, and while there are no indications that this is credible, additional LPPD officers and administrators were at La Porte High School Friday. Again, please be assured that we take any and all threats very seriously, and even those remarks made as a "joke" will be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. We appreciate our students and parents for working with us to keep our schools safe.

A note about La Porte ISD's security measures

In La Porte ISD, safety and security are not just words.  They are our highest priority.  Our campus leaders work hard every day to make their campuses places where children feel safe and secure—havens where teachers can teach and students can learn in comfort.
