ETX authorities determine school threat to be hoax

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office determined “alarming threats” made against the Woden Independent School District to be false early Monday morning.

Sheriff Jason Bridges said investigators were able to identify individuals who made threats against the campuses, as well as posted those threats online.

Sheriff Bridges added that the incident “is nothing more than a hoax” and that there is no real threat of safety of the school from the individual.

Officials received word of an unspecified threat around 7:00 p.m. Sunday and then turned to the public for help with any information that could identify the suspects.

Classes will be held at all campuses on Monday and the sheriff’s office “will maintain a full presence at Woden ISD to give all our students, parents and teachers some peace of mind,” according to Sheriff Bridges.

Bridges also added that the people behind the hoax have been identified and may be charged at the conclusion of the investigation.

Woden ISD consists of three campuses: Woden Elementary, Woden Junior High School, and Woden High School. The district's enrollment is 806 students, according to the Texas Education Agency.
