HISD Media Release–Incidents at HHS

Published on December 11, 2013 by Larry Crippen

Huntsville ISD Reports Incidents at Huntsville High School Huntsville, Texas—December 11, 2013

In an effort to share information related to the events at Huntsville High School occurring on December

10th and 11th, please read the facts below:

On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, there were a total of five separate incidents at HHS. Two were fights as

defined by the district disciplinary code. Three were classified as confrontations since no blows were

exchanged. All appropriate disciplinary actions are being taken with all students involved.

A staff member was treated and released for injuries sustained as a result of one of the incidents. At no

time were any weapons involved in any of Tuesday’s incidents.

Today, Wednesday, December 11, 2013, HHS Administrators received a tip from a concerned parent that

a particular student might have brought a weapon to school today. Administrators quickly responded

and brought that student into administrative custody for investigation whereupon it was determined that

the student did have a BB gun inside of his backpack. Appropriate disciplinary action was taken.

At no point over the past two days has HHS been on “lockdown.” However, Mega Lunch was cut short

both days in response to the events. Please know that all appropriate steps are being taken to ensure the

safety of all students at HHS. The safety of our students and staff is, and will remain, our primary

concern. Fighting of any nature will not be tolerated on our campuses, and any item brought to school

that can be used or construed as a weapon, is strictly prohibited. The district urges our Huntsville ISD

families to discuss with and remind their students about appropriate and acceptable behavior while at

school.
