Safety and security are our top priorities at Rowlett High School. Whenever an issue is reported to us, we take it very seriously. After a potential threat was reported this morning, additional Garland ISD Security and Rowlett PD were at the campus. As a result safety protocols were put into place, and the person making the threat was identified and removed from campus, helping us to ensure the continued safety of students and staff at the campus.
At this time, students are in class, and the school day will continue as scheduled.
