A menacing message scrawled on a bathroom wall gave Vidor High School parents a pause to consider whether to send their kids to school last week on Thursday. Sixty-one percent of parents chose to keep their kids at home.

Last week an anonymous threat of violence written on a wall of the Vidor High School forced parents to consider keeping their children home from school.

On Tuesday, January 28, someone left a written threat of violence on a wall of a restroom in the Vidor High School.

According to information released by Vidor I.S.D. Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Jay Killgo on Tuesday afternoon someone in the High School’s administration discovered graffiti on a wall of a girls’ restroom in the Vidor High School. The wording of the graffiti made a threat of school shooting planned for Thursday, January 30th .

On Wednesday morning, Dr. Killgo issued a second call out to Vidor High School parents, the A.I.M. Center High School parents and parents of Vidor Middle School Fifth Grade class that is currently housed at the High School indicating that the writing that was found on a wall of a girls’ restroom of Vidor High School stated, “I’m shooting up the school 1-30-20! Hope you die.” The writing was in pencil and appeared to be hastily written according to the call out.
