Santa Fe High School Alerts Parents of Threatening Text Against Students

The Houston Chronicle reports two students involved in a threatening text message exchange will “face appropriate disciplinary action,” according to a letter to parents.

Officials at Santa Fe High School, where a shooting in May left 10 people dead, said students involved with a threatening text message exchange will face appropriate disciplinary action.

The Houston Chronicle reports the threatening comments come less than a month after students at Santa Fe High School began the new school year.

In a letter to parents, Principal Rachel Blundell said administrators learned of the threat on Wednesday afternoon and contacted authorities.

Blundell said, in the letter, that “any threat against student safety will not be tolerated.”

Students at Santa Fe High School began the new school year with additional security measures, including metal detectors, following the deadly shooting.

The student accused of the shooting, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, has been indicted on capital murder charges and remains jailed without bond.
