TISD says death threats are a prank after investigation

Texarkana, TX - Texarkana Independent School District investigated a threat at Texas High.

Police say the threats were found written on a bathroom wall and a desk that say's "Everyone will die March 8th." School officials say they're not taking the situation lightly.

Superintendent Paul Norton says, while it is a family decision on whether parents send their kids to school Wednesday, security is a priority.

"We have extra folks that will be on campus extra police officers that will be around to help when needed, but we feel it's going to be safe obviously everyday parents have a choice whether to send there child to school or not" says Norton.

Police say a similar incident happened in Hooks, Texas a week before. Texas High School officials say during their investigation, the threats were found to be a prank.
