School district says rumors of guns at LC-M High School untrue

News release from Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD:

Rumors of students bringing guns to LCM High School or students from another district coming to LCM with guns are running rampant. Law enforcement officials began investigating the rumors last night and have concluded there is no truth to it. Officers are still on campus today, to assure parents of their students' safety. They are investigating Instagram and Facebook messages as well as other ways in which the rumor has been spread and who is responsible for instigating the rumor.

Campus and District administrators want to assure parents that their childrens' safety is at the top of the schools' priorities.

If any findings to the contrary are discovered on any campus, parents would be notified directly.

Sherry Combs, community relations coordinator for LC-M CISD, wrote in email correspondence, "Today we are seeing the negative effects of social media run amok. Not only is this perpetuating incorrect information and scaring parents, it is disruptive to the educational process, which is in the best interest of ALL of our students."
