Threat Locks Down Three AISD Campuses

The Amarillo Independent School District temporarily locked down three campuses on Tuesday afternoon.  

AISD officials received a report that some juveniles were waiting off-campus to fight with a student at Travis Middle School as class was being dismissed.

 Officials had a concern that one of the individuals might be armed.

Both Travis schools and Whittier Elementary were placed on a temporary lockout while Amarillo Police searched for the suspects.

Police lifted the lockdown after they felt there was no longer a threat.

Amarillo ISD said in a statement:

Safety is always the highest priority, and this situation serves as a good reminder for parents, students, and staff members that if you see something suspicious or concerning, to always say something about it.
