CYPRESS TEXAS — CFISD leaders announced this afternoon that an alleged school threat ran its rounds on social media yesterday (Feb. 11, 2019).

The leaders said they have not determined it to be a legitimate threat, and ask anyone with screenshots, etc., of the original social media post(s) to stop reposting and sharing them, as that has been increasing confusion within the community.

“Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to follow up on yesterday’s alleged school threat on social media. The CFISD police department and school administration have continued to investigate the situation, and we have not been able to corroborate a legitimate threat.

Many of our students are still seeing conversations, messages, and screenshots on social media from the incident this morning. At this time, we request that you support Cypress Creek High School by discussing with your child the importance of sharing concerns with adults and school officials, as well as the negative impact of reposting comments and screenshots on social media. Reposting can lead to concern and confusion.

Thank you for your continued trust in us as we work to make Cypress Creek High School the safest possible learning environment for our students.”
