MAY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Attendance is down in May ISD Thursday due to a threat the school district says is unfounded.
Superintendent Mike Carter told KTAB and KRBC he wasn't sure exactly how many students are absent, but he did confirm there was a noticeable drop in attendance due to the threat.
Carter says a student made threat against the school district back in September or October of 2016, and the specific date attached to the threat was April 20, 2017.
School district officials and local law enforcement investigated when the threat first surfaced and determined it was unfounded, according to Carter, who referred to the threat as a "flippant statement" made by the student.
And, though the threat has been deemed unfounded, parents and students are still concerned. Cater wants to assure the public he's been in contact with the father of the student who made the threat and says there is still no evidence to suggest it's legitimate.
