Henderson ISD expresses deep condolences to the entire Parkland, Florida community. We are deeply sadden by the events that have occurred there this week.  The tragedy reminds us that a similar event could happen anywhere.

The safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority, and we continually work to provide a safe and supportive learning environment.

All of the Henderson ISD campuses practice safety drills to prepare for emergencies, including campus lockdowns. 

Henderson ISD employs a full time police liaison and contracts with the police to provide additional security on the campuses. The district administration also continues to follow recommendations provided by the Texas School Safety Center to address emergency management.

The district would like to remind our community, students, and staff that if they notice anything out of the ordinary, suspicious, or threatening to please report it as soon as possible so that authorities can investigate potential threats. If an administrator is unavailable, the district provides a “Quick Tips” link on the home page of the district website as well as continuously monitors all private Facebook messages.

The events in Florida remind us to continually strive to be prepared and practice to improve our responses to emergencies. As we learn more about what led up to the incidence, HISD will continue to revise and update emergency plans so that we can do everything we can to protect our students and staff.
