BISD Follow Up Statement

Dear Parents,

We want to provide you with an update regarding the student threat that the Bandera County Sheriff’s Department received yesterday evening from a Bandera Middle School student.  We are pleased to report that the situation was resolved last night, and our school remains a safe and secure environment for learning.

Following our investigation, we have determined that the verbal threat was not credible. Local Bandera law enforcement is following up and will address any laws that may have been broken.  

We want to assure you that we take all threats seriously and have protocols in place to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We appreciate the support and cooperation of our school community throughout this situation.

We want to remind you of the importance of talking to your children about the seriousness of making false threats and the potential consequences of such actions. We also encourage you to continue to report any suspicious activity or behavior to school officials or law enforcement.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.


Gary Bitzkie

Bandera ISD Superintendent
