* Reports of a riot at Lamar High School are false. Some students made these claims as part of a misguided prank. 1 hour ago
HISD STATEMENT: Several students at Lamar High School pulled a “senior prank” today by throwing paper balls at classmates and running through the halls. Many students also used social media and text messages to report that a riot was occurring on campus in an apparent attempt to create a disruption so that officials would cancel classes for the rest of the day. Order has been restored and classes are back to normal. The incident will be handled as a disciplinary matter. There were no injuries and no arrests.
