Statement from White Oak ISD
In an effort to bring some clarification to the events over the weekend, the district would like to share the following:
- The picture posted last Friday evening is being treated as a terroristic threat against White Oak ISD.
- White Oak Police Department is currently investigating this action and will determine when and if any arrests will be made. The district enjoys a positive working relationship with the WOPD and is working closely with them to bring this matter to its proper conclusion.
- WOPD has sole authority and full discretion to make an arrest. This level of legal authority is not assigned to the district.
- The safety of our students, faculty and staff is, and has always been, the top priority of the leadership of White Oak ISD. This situation is a testament to our commitment to that priority. Action was taken to notify the police immediately and the correct person was identified as the creator of the post. As a result, when our students arrived at school on Tuesday, they were never exposed to the threat posted Friday evening.
I want to once again assure the students, faculty, staff and community of White Oak ISD that your safety is a daily focus of this leadership team. I acknowledge that the lack of detailed information can be frustrating. As a district, we are bound by law to protect the privacy rights of the minors entrusted to our care, even when bad decisions are made and consequences are required.
Finally, I would like to thank you for your overwhelming display of public trust in the White Oak Independent School District. Attendance, district wide, on Tuesday, February 20th was just shy of 95%. The district sees this as a testimony to the commitment we have to protect and educate your children on a daily basis.
New Traffic Information
Beginning Monday, December 18, 2017
There will be a new traffic pattern at and around the High School to accommodate a construction zone in the north student parking lot (in red). Please take the time to review the map included in the message and make note of the following:
There will be no through traffic in front of the high school and parking in that area will be for teachers only. (in yellow)
Areas available for student parking are outlined in orange. Those that park across the street from the auditorium will have a crossing guard to ensure safe passage to campuses. Large trucks need to park in the lot behind the Middle School Gym (where the band practices).
All High School student drop-off and pick-up will be in front of the Food Service building and traffic is designated as one way from south to north (in green). **(Traffic coming from the north on White Oak Road are encouraged to drop-off in the parking lot across the street and use the protected cross walk)
This traffic pattern will be in place until the end of August 2018. The district would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during the process of upgrading our facilities.

Parents and Students,
It is very important that all Chromebooks stay in the cases that were provided. We have had damages such as bent frames and broken screens, which will not occur as long as the Chromebook is used and carried in its proper case. They are not supposed to be carried in backpacks unprotected. The insurance that you paid will only cover the repair if the Chromebook was properly maintained, including remaining in the case at all times. It is extremely easy to tell if the Chromebook was damaged while not in its case, and students will be financially responsible if the computer was not treated properly. Please take care of this and protect the huge investment the district has made to enhance every student’s educational experience! Thank you.
