To the Parents and Community of Palacios,
At approximately 11:18 am, our East Side Intermediate Campus went into a Perimeter Lock for approximately 5 minutes as a precautionary measure due to Palacios Police related activity near our campus. A Perimeter Lock is a recently added level of campus safety and security in which all the entry points to the campus are locked and secured while operations and instruction continue on as normal inside. Both PISD Police and Administration took immediate action and worked closely with Palacios Police to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff. At no time do we believe any of our students or staff members were in any danger. Perimeter Lock was lifted once Palacios Police concluded their investigation and determined the grounds around the school were safe once again. Please rest assured that the safety and security of our students and staff will always remain our number one priority. Thank you for your time and attention.
