Dear parents,

This letter is to inform you about a lockdown that was held this morning. Knippa ISD is committed to the safety of all of our students and we want to clearly communicate with our parents about safety issues should they arise.

This morning, we received notification from local Border Patrol agents regarding the search for an individual north of the campus. Border patrol agents advised us to go into lockdown until the individual was located and apprehended. All faculty and staff immediately implemented lockdown procedures. We remained in lockdown for 30 minutes until we were notified by local law enforcement that we were safe to resume normal school activities.

We, Knippa ISD, feel that open and clear communication with parents is important to enhance our safety efforts and wanted you to know about this incident. Please feel free to call me at (830) 934-2176 or email me at
