Brenham ISD has released a statement in the wake of Tuesday’s shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde which left at least 21 people dead, including 19 students.
The Brenham Independent School District extends condolences to the Uvalde community for their enormous loss. In response to the tragic events, and out of an abundance of caution, the Brenham police department will have an increased presence on campuses for the remainder of the school year. The safety and security of our students is our top priority. The Brenham ISD counselors remain available for students in need of assistance.
The Brenham ISD has not issued a statement regarding no backpacks for the remainder of the year. The Brenham Junior High Campus previously announced backpacks were not needed for the final week of school due to the logistics of activities planned for the students.
Thank you for your continued support of Brenham ISD.
