Extra security is in place today at Memorial High School in the Spring Branch ISD due to an online threat.

Memorial High School Principal William Lakin received information about a posting on a non school-related Facebook page called MHS Confessions that referenced a threat to Memorial High School today. According to a message from the school, he contacted the SBISD Police, senior staff and district technology team. School police have been investigating to identify the source of this post.

School officials say they are taking this reference to a threat very seriously and will have additional SBISD police on campus all day today.

If you have any information regarding this threat, you're asked to contact Principal Lakin or SBISD Police at 713-984-9805, CrimeStoppers or use the anonymous tip line on the Memorial High website.
