Message To DHS Parents - Safety & Security


Wednesday, February 21, 2018



Duncanville High School family,


I recognize the importance of partnering with our parents and community members in student education and school safety. That includes being as transparent as possible concerning occurrences at Duncanville High School.


Today school resource officers confiscated a gun that was in the possession of a student on campus. It is possible that students in one specific class may have seen the weapon. As soon as a teacher became aware, he immediately contacted law enforcement. Police officers came to the room to confiscate the gun and arrest the student. In addition to criminal charges, the student may also face appropriate discipline based on the student code of conduct.  


As our district leaders shared just this week, we recognize the importance of students having a safe learning environment. As a result, we continue to work with our law enforcement partners to make sure our students are as safe as possible.
