As a District, we understand how difficult it is to hear the recent news impacting our students of La Vernia ISD. The District takes these matters very seriously and took immediate action by following detailed instructions from law enforcement during their ongoing investigation. The privacy of the situation is a delicate matter. Please keep in mind the students being investigated and those directly impacted by this situation are all friends, classmates, and community members. Please share with your children that counselors are available and that their privacy will be respected if they want to speak to someone through this trying time. We may have other students come forward wanting to report information, and we are prepared for this situation if it arises. Please let your children know that someone will be available to listen to them in a private setting.
During this time, I recommend we pull together as a community. La Vernia ISD is committed to student safety. Rest assured that all precautionary measures have been taken to ensure the safety of your children.
