Schools Braced on Threatened Day of Violence

By Bill O'Neil 

The Northside Independent School District's "Controlled Access Plan" has been activated for thids day of threatened violence at an unnamed San Antonio elementary school.

The tightened restrictions will mean limited outdoor activities at schools, as well as a bit of a damper on any Fiesta celebrations that may have been scheduled. 

"Unfortunately, those have to be postponed. We just can not have lots of people in the school that we may not know" the district's Pascual Gonzalez told 550 KTSA News, adding parents will have to show identification if they do show up at their child's school.

Meanwhile, Gonzalez says attendance within the district appears to be about average so far this week. 

"We fluctuate between 95% and 96%--so children are in school, and we want them to be" Gonzalex said. 

Other area districts are also taking no chances. 

"Even though the threat does not seem to be credible, we are taking it very seriously" said Aubrey Chancellor with the North East Independent School District. Extra precautions are also being taken in the Judson Independent School District. 

"We've even had some offers from some of the smaller municipalities offering an extra officer to come on campus" the district's Steve Linscomb told 550 KTSA News.
