Letter from Kingwood High School Principal about the rumored threats against the school and students this week:
"Dear Kingwood High School Parents,
You may be aware of rumors spread on social media regarding a threat of violence at KHS. I want to assure you that these are just rumors. School authorities, police, and prosecutors investigated. There is no evidence of a credible threat.
The rumors stemmed from a comment a student made about violence at a pep rally. Later in the week, a second student made a similar but unrelated comment. All rumors are being investigated. Students involved were identified and face school discipline.
Because we were investigating, we made the decision to postpone today’s pep rally to later in the school year. However, as we confirmed there was no evidence of a threat, all other activities and classes continued as normal.
We encourage any student who has information involving rumors to tell school staff immediately. We encourage parents who monitor their child’s social media to do the same. Thank you for your support.
