JISD Superintendent Rob Barnwell said:

I want everyone to know that we really appreciate your understanding and patience today as we dealt with the lockdown situation.   The incident that occurred about a mile north of the high school, off of highway 59, seems to have been a result of a domestic dispute and there is no reason to believe that our students or staff will be in any danger as we move forward.  Therefore, we will have school tomorrow as normal.  We also plan to allow our students to participate in all of the extra-curricular activities that are scheduled. 

I understand these incidents create concern and are inconvenient to deal with.  However, here at JISD, we always want to be diligent and ensure that all our students and staff members remain safe as possible.  

This information will also be placed on our district website and our facebook page in order to help communicate our message and to assist anyone who may not be receiving the "all-call messages" by telephone.  If you would like to be added to the all-call list, or if you need to update your contact information, please feel free to contact us at the school and we will take care of that for you.   Thank you again.
