Dear HPISD Parents & Staff,


Another threatening note was found at HPHS. It was found by a UP police officer at the top of a stairwell. We have no reason to believe that it is a credible threat, and we are continuing with the school day. 


FBI agents and armed police officers are on campus working with school officials to question students. 


We believe it is imperative that we not give in to repeated threats. We acknowledge the stress and anxiety that this has caused for our students, staff and families. Our top priority is to keep everyone on our campus safe and secure. The building has been repeatedly searched and determined to be safe. Armed police officers have been on campus all day. We are aggressively pursuing resolution in this series of highly disruptive events.


For those parents who wish to pick up their children, please contact the attendance office to do so. Standard attendance policies will apply.


HPISD will continue to update parents, students and staff through its emergency text-message system, email, and posts on the district website.
