“There is NO incident at La Vernia High School. The students were never in any danger and the situaiton is under control,” according to La Vernia Police Sgt. Danny Pitts.

He was responding this morning to rumors in the La Vernia community of an incident at the high school, and questions about student and campus safety.

High school Principal Kim Martin emailed parents midmorning today, May 9, essentially stating the same thing.

“I would like to assure you that all allegations concerning any possible threat have been addressed,” Martin said, adding that all parties involved in ensuring student safety had been contacted and the campus was, and is, secure.

Pitts said a student comment made May 6 was brought to the attention of the La Vernia Police Department. Chief Bruce Ritchey acted immediately over the weekend to address the possible threat.

At no time were any students or district personnel in any danger, Pitts said.

Any concerns may be addressed to Principal Kim Martin at 830-779-6630.

According to law enforcement, there was no incident and NO arrest. The investigation by police and administrators in the wake of the alleged comment indicated no danger to students or staff at the high school.

If there was no incident, and it was isolated over the weekend, then why was the kid arrested at the school on Monday?

Excuse me.........I was at the car wash between 10:30 and 12:00 washing my truck and watched kids playing on the field and there were no indications of an issue. Now - this would not be something that has to do with "encouraging"... More ›

I guess LV High School and PD need a class in transparency in government. Why hasn't the ISD Superintendent or Chief Ritchey stepped in on this? Maybe a class on public perception too.
