Classes in the Columbus ISD were cancelled earlier this morning after district officials were alerted by students to a threat that was made against the district on Snapchat. Columbus ISD Superintendent Brian Morris tells KTRH the district is currently in the process of figuring out whether or not to resume class tomorrow.
“We are going to work with our local law enforcement to hopefully increase our police presence over the next several days,” Morris said.
He added the decision to close down schools today was a no-brainer after Santa Fe.
“It was a situation where it is better safe than sorry. You can’t take those kind of comments lightly,” Morris stated.
Morris also told KTRH News the threat involved the use of an AK-47 and that the person who made the threat was not a student in the district.
