Two Livingston ISD students were arrested Thursday in two unrelated incidents. A 14-year-old at the high school was arrested and charged with false alarm or report. A 13-year-old at the junior high school was arrested and charged with assault.
“We had a student arrested after school hours yesterday,” a district representative wrote in an email that was sent to parents Friday morning. “While this morning there is no known threat toward our campus(es), it is important that we all work together to remind our students that threatening words and/or statements are taken seriously. Threatening words create a disruption to operations and are counterproductive to our mission of safety, both physically and emotionally, of all involved.
“Unfortunately, during the course of finalizing the documentation of the arrest made after school yesterday, we had an additional arrest of a student that made a threat in the presence of law enforcement at the junior high campus. This student was immediately removed from campus by law enforcement. We take all matters of safety seriously and act as expeditiously as possible to ensure control of the situation. We strive to provide clear and timely communication to parents and staff while abiding by confidentiality afforded by the law,” a second email to parents said.
