Social media threats targeting Frisco ISD campuses under investigation



The Frisco Police Department is actively investigating a threat directed at several Frisco Independent School District (ISD) campuses that was received through a social media platform, according to Dallas Metro News, a media outlet covering local news about Dallas. While the police have been working tirelessly to obtain more information about the threat, no specific details have been disclosed to the public thus far.

In the interim, the police department has emphasized its commitment to ensuring the individual responsible for this disconcerting threat is held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. As the investigation unfolds, it is expected that more insight will be gained into the credibility of the threat against the campuses.

To alleviate potential panic within the community, Frisco ISD administrators sent an email to parents of students in the district, stating that absences on Monday would be excused. The message acknowledged recent events at the Allen Outlet Mall and Stonebriar Mall, and empathized with the heightened safety concerns surrounding students.

The email also encouraged parents to engage in conversations with their children about exercising caution with their words, both in written and verbal communication, as any missteps could result in serious charges. It highlighted the potential disciplinary and legal ramifications of such actions.

Threats against school facilities or students carry significant legal consequences, ranging from a Class-A misdemeanor with fines up to $4,000 and up to a year in jail, to a third-degree felony with penalties of up to $10,000 and two to 10 years in prison.

As the situation continues to develop, the Frisco Police Department urges everyone to stay vigilant about their safety and monitor social media platforms for updates.
