Northwest ISD has been working with the town of Trophy Club as police conducted an investigation of the bomb threat made to Byron Nelson High School on Monday, Jan. 30. On Monday, Feb. 6, district administration was informed by Trophy Club police that an arrest had been made.

The district is constrained by federal and state law that limits what can be discussed about students; however, the district will continue to work with police during their investigation and appropriate action will be taken in accordance with the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct.

Safety of children and staff remains the top priority in Northwest ISD. The district is appreciative of the support from the town and community members in the aftermath of last week.

“Our priority and privilege is educating 22,000 students,” said Superintendent of Schools Ryder Warren, Ed.D. “As educators, we are able to guide our students toward their futures by making smart decisions. If a choice is made that leads someone down the wrong path, it is necessary to learn from a bad decision and understand the impact that makes. I encourage our parents to continue their partnership with Northwest ISD by taking an opportunity to talk to their children so they fully understand the lasting impact a wrong decision can have.”
