Parents concerned over lack of communication, school districts respond


LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- With the recent gun threats by students at both LISD and UISD, parents claimed that neither district released any information about the incidents.

Both districts say they take the proper steps in making sure their schools are safe. Both school districts have been recently been criticized by parents for not releasing information on potential dangers at their schools.

An LISD student did get into trouble for bringing a toy gun on school grounds but wasn't arrested according to superintended Marcus Nelson.

The reason parents were not told was because the incident was never a threat.

Around the same time, a United ISD student was arrested for alleged comments he made which would lead to a search of his home after law enforcement would find pictures of him with high powered weapons.

He's currently facing chargers of making terroristic treats and discharging a firearm within the city limits.

Both times each district says they didn't tell parents because there was no danger.

Both school districts say they work hard to keep their campuses safe, and do have measures in place to notify parents if a real danger were to happen.
