Students returned to class following Navasota bomb scare
Navasota High School found a note they perceived as a possible bomb threat on Wednesday morning. Students were immediately evacuated for their safety as the Navasota Police and the Navasota Fire Department arrived on the scene.
Navasota Police Chief Shawn Myatt tells News 3's Clay Falls the threat has been deemed not credible and students have been readmitted into the building.
Navasota High School Administration and local law enforcement will continue to investigate.
"We'd like to remind parents to speak to their students and to remind them that making threats towards a school is against the law. We will continue to investigate this incident and if we have to prosecute this incident and this student who made this threat we will," said Ronnie Gonzalez, Ed.D., Navasota ISD Assistant Superintendent of Operations.
"If parents could speak to their students and remind them that this is not a game. Threats to the school, threats to any city are against the law and if they could remind their students there not to make any threats," he said.
