Situation Update for Jefferson ISD School. - All Call Information.

posted Feb 22, 2017, 1:31 PM by JEREMY PEELER   [ updated Feb 24, 2017, 5:28 AM ]
Today, Jefferson ISD Schools were in a "Lock-Down" due to an incident in close proximity to the high school campus.  The following "All-Call" messages were sent out in efforts to notify the parents of what Jefferson ISD was doing to create a safe environment for students and staff:

 "For the safety of our students and staff, All campuses are currently on lockdown (which means no one is allowed in or out of our secured buildings) until notification from our local law enforcement.  A shooting took place at a residence on hwy 59 just north of the high school and the suspect has not be apprehended at this time.  It is believed he is armed and dangerous.  He may be driving a white SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer.   Please contact us at the school or the local law enforcement if you witness anything that may be of assistance.  We have been advised to maintain lockdown status until further notice.  We will be in contact with everyone again as soon as the situation changes.  Our students are in a safe domain at this time with plenty of supervision.  I certainly appreciate your understanding during this situation.

"At this time, JISD is still on mandatory lockdown at all campuses.   However , it has been determined that it is safe to allow for parents to personally come pick up their students beginning at 3:00 pm.  Local law enforcement will be positioned at each campus to provide appropriate security during the pickups. However, at this time, we are not prepared to allow for the busses to run their normal routes until further notice since the suspect that was mentioned in the previous all-call has not been apprehended at this time.  I understand this situation has caused some inconvenience and concern. I appreciate your continued understanding as we try to deal with the ongoing issue.  Please call us here at the school or our local law enforcement should you become aware of anything that may be of assistance regarding this situation.   Thanks again."
