Dear Parents,

This message is to inform you that Shepton High School employed an evacuation this afternoon. A bomb threat was called into the front office at about 1:25 this afternoon. Our school acted in an abundance of caution and implemented immediate safety measures.

Students followed standard evacuation procedures and remained outside while Plano ISD security personn...el and Plano Police Department officers thoroughly searched the entire building. As heat and sun quickly became a consideration and due to the late hour, we determined that the best option was to dismiss students.

Students who walk or drive have been allowed to go home. Students who ride the bus or carpool have been relocated to nearby Huffman Elementary School. All students are being picked up from Huffman Elementary School. As buses become available, they are taking Shepton bus riders home from Huffman.

The safety of our students and staff is always our top priority. Thank you for your ongoing support of our efforts to provide an outstanding school program in a safe and secure learning environment.
