Hello Westbury Teachers
Westbury HS was placed on lock down today for about 15 minutes. At approximately, 11:40AM three gun shots were heard coming from an apartment complex adjacent to the school campus. As a precaution, students who were outside on the track and field areas were moved into the school building and all hallways were cleared of students.
HISD Police Officers immediately began to patrol the campus perimeter. After determining that the perimeter area of campus was clear of threat HISD Police Officers returned to the campus.
Currently, the school campus is operating normally. Extra HISD Police officers will be on campus for the remainder of the day and visible at dismissal this afternoon.
