CEDAR CREEK, Texas (KXAN) — A Cedar Creek High School student who became upset after being suspended briefly forced the school to be locked down on Friday, the principal said.
The student climbed onto the roof of the school and the building immediately went into lockdown at 12:15 p.m., Principal Adelaida Olivares said in a letter to parents.
Olivares, Bastrop County sheriff’s officers and a social worker were able to talk the student down from the roof, the letter said.
The school was locked down for about 20 minutes, but Olivares said the student did not present a threat to anyone else at the school or plan to harm himself.
“At no time were our students unsafe or at risk,” Olivares said. “I was very proud of the way our students responded to the situation.”
In November, a school resource officer used a stun gun on a student at the school. That incident is currently under investigation by the FBI.
