LAMPASAS, Texas (KWTX) A Lampasas Middle School student was arrested Monday after a threat of violence against the school, Superintendent Chane Rascoe said in a message to parents.

“The responsible student will be charged by law enforcement, meanwhile we will follow district policies and procedures and take appropriate action in handling this issue,” Rascoe said in the message.

“We want to assure you that we take all security related incidents very seriously, and we will always exercise caution regarding matters of safety.”

“We ask that parents have an important discussion with students about using good judgment. We have seen examples of students using good judgment in reporting these incidents to trusted adults,” he said.

“Administrators and teachers at all campuses have been meeting with students to explain the consequences that can occur if they make a threat against the school. However, it is important that this message be reinforced at home.”
