CRANDALL, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) Crandall High School released students early Tuesday, Jan. 18, after the Kaufman County broadcast received a text alluding to a possible bomb in the Crandall High area.
The text was non-specific and did not refer to Crandall High School, but its location was pinged to the CHS area.
Out of an abundance of caution, students and staff evacuated the building.
School district leaders along with city and county law enforcement officers arrived at the school to help clear the building and keep students and staff safe.
The campus is closed to visitors.
Crandall ISD said after-school activities are pending at this time.
Shortly before 2pm, the school district said on its Facebook page: “All students and staff are out of the building and in safety. Be aware that traffic will be heavy and these times can be adjusted accordingly. Your assistance is appreciated and is the key to relieving traffic during today’s layoffs. ”
