EDCOUCH - Edcouch-Elsa school district officials said they are reviewing the district's policy on lock-in procedures.
The Edcouch-Elsa High School was locked-in Thursday afternoon. The district's police chief said someone threatened to hurt the students, but the threat was never confirmed. The lock-in was just a precaution.
Parents were upset because they were not notified about the incident.
School officials said the reason parents were not called was because the threat was not substantiated.
"During a lock-in, we secure the entrances (and) nobody is allowed in or out," Assistant Principal Jaime Garcia said.
"During a lockdown, the teachers are advised to put everybody in a safe area, away from windows and doors," he said.
District officials said they will take another look at their policies to ensure better communication with parents.
