Possible 'stranger danger' incident this morning (April 9) in Bavaria neighborhood

Parents, Sheldon ISD would like to make you aware of a “stranger danger” incident that occurred near the Bavaria neighborhood this morning. In addition, administrators learned of this incident this afternoon.
At approximately 6:20 a.m. today, a C. E. King High School student was approached by a Caucasian male and female – believed to be in their late 20s to possibly early 40s – driving a late model blue BMW four-door SUV at the intersection of Pia Drive and Piave Drive. The couple stayed near the bus stop area for around 15 minutes before asking the student if they knew how to get to the airport.
While the student was on the phone contacting a parent, the couple sped off in their SUV and continued to circle the Bavaria neighborhood.
Thankfully, no one was harmed, and the police are currently investigating this incident. In the meantime, I encourage you to discuss these safety tips with your children:

• Students should walk in groups, not alone;
• Students should avoid distractions, such as cell phones, and pay attention to their surroundings;
• Students who are approached by a stranger should run away and seek help from others;
• Students should physically resist and yell for help if anyone tries to force them into a vehicle or a home; and
• Students should immediately report any incident that makes them feel uncomfortable.

Again, Sheldon ISD administrators are working very closely with local law enforcement to help them in any way possible during their ongoing investigation.
Thank you.

Update - 4/3/19 9:48 a.m.

Sheldon ISD is also limiting all outside activities today until the odor dissipates. In addition, we are closing off outside air vents to prevent outside air from entering the campuses. Please note - this does not affect our air conditioning system...as they will continue to function properly.
These are just additional precautionary measures the district is taking to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
Thank you....

Earlier this morning, Sheldon ISD administrators placed Carroll Elementary, Garrett Elementary, and Null Middle School in a shelter in place for approximately 30 minutes as a precautionary measure because a gas-like odor was detected in the areas surrounding those campuses.
The local fire department was dispatched, and we are happy to report that all campuses were quickly cleared of any gas detection.
Sheldon ISD would like to thank the Sheldon Fire Department, Harris County Precinct 3 Constables, and SISD maintenance department personnel for their swift actions in helping resolve this situation by using gas-detecting instruments.

Update, 4/2/18 at 12:45 p.m.

Sheldon ISD administrators initially called a shelter in place out of an abundance of caution earlier this morning. Since then, the Harris County Sheriff’s office has declared a shelter in place within a one-mile radius of the fire in Crosby.

Since Sheldon ISD does not fall within this one-mile radius, the district is lifting its shelter in place. Sheldon ISD will continue to limit outside activities for the remainder of the school day. However, we are allowing parents to pick up their children from school early should they wish to do so. At this time, we are planning to dismiss students at normal dismissal times.

We will continue to monitor the conditions of the fire and will keep you updated with any additional information at a later time.

Parents, we would like to provide you with an update regarding this morning’s KMCO fire in Crosby.

In addition, any students who are on field trips will continue to be on their field trip...and we will continue to monitor the status of the incident. If there is a need to change a designated pickup location, we will make you aware in a timely manner.

Again, we appreciate your cooperation in understanding our shelter-in-place protocols – as our students and staff are safe inside our facilities.

Tomorrow - Monday, March 25 - has been changed to an instructional day for students.
Although Monday was originally scheduled as a Staff Development Day on the school year calendar, it is necessary that we make up one of the three instructional days that were lost because of last week’s chemical fire incidents in Deer Park.
As the overall safety and security of our students and staff remain our top priorities, we will continue to stay in close contact with the Harris County Health Department to ensure the air quality is safe.
Should conditions change, please continue to monitor our district website at www.sheldonisd.com or our social media pages for up-to-date information.
Again, students will be returning to school tomorrow, Monday, March 25.

Important Information from Sheldon ISD - Posted on 3/21/19 at 8:18 p.m.

Sheldon ISD administrators have decided to cancel school on Friday, March 22, which also includes all extracurricular and after-school events. Sheldon ISD continues to err on the side of caution because tomorrow’s air quality conditions could change at a moment’s notice – just like it did early this morning. The safety of our students and staff are far more important to us.

Also, please note that students will need to come to school on Monday, March 25. This was originally a Staff Development Day, but students are now being asked to come to school.

Again, there is no school on Friday, March 22…but students will need to come to school on Monday, March 25.

Please visit the Sheldon ISD website at www.sheldonisd.com or social media pages for the latest late-breaking information.

We would also like to take this opportunity to answer a few questions that were provided by many of you on our social media pages.

Will the district have to make up these missed days?
The district will file a waiver with Texas Commissioner of Education Mike Morath. Commissioner Morath will ultimately make that decision for us at a later date.

Monday, March 25, is a Staff Development Day on the school year calendar. Will students now have to attend school?
Yes, students will need to attend school on Monday, March 25. Please make arrangements since this was originally scheduled as a Staff Development Day on the Sheldon ISD 2018-19 School Year Calendar.

What about Friday’s athletic events?
Unfortunately, our athletic events will have to be rescheduled – including the Panther Relays Track Meet at Crenshaw Memorial Stadium. The Deer Park incident also affects other schools within our district. LaPorte High School, for example, is rescheduling its athletic events as well.

Los administradores de Sheldon ISD decidieron cancelar la escuela el viernes 22 de marzo, que también incluye todos los eventos extracurriculares y después de la escuela.

Sheldon ISD continúa errando por el lado de la precaución porque las condiciones de calidad del aire del mañana podrían cambiar en cualquier momento, tal como lo hizo esta mañana temprano. La seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal es mucho más importante para nosotros.

Tenga en cuenta que los estudiantes tienen que venir a la escuela el lunes 25 de marzo. Este fue originalmente un Día de Desarrollo del Personal, pero ahora se les está pidiendo a los estudiantes que vengan a la escuela.

Nuevamente, no hay clases el viernes 22 de marzo ... pero los estudiantes deberán venir a la escuela el lunes 25 de marzo.

¿Tendrá que recuperar el distrito estos días perdidos?
El distrito presentará una exención ante el Comisionado de Educación de Texas Mike Morath. El Comisionado Morath finalmente tomará esa decisión por nosotros otro dia.

El lunes 25 de marzo es un Día de Desarrollo del Personal en el calendario del año escolar. ¿Los estudiantes ahora tendrán que asistir a la escuela?
Sí, los estudiantes deberán asistir a la escuela el lunes 25 de marzo. Por favor, haga los arreglos necesarios, ya que originalmente se programó como un Día de Desarrollo del Personal en el calendario escolar de Sheldon ISD 2018-19.


¿Qué pasa con los eventos atléticos del viernes?
Desafortunadamente, nuestros eventos atléticos tendrán que ser reprogramados, incluido el evento Panther Relays Track Meet en Crenshaw Memorial Stadium. El incidente de Deer Park también afecta a otras escuelas dentro de nuestro distrito. La Escuela Secundaria LaPorte, por ejemplo, también está reprogramando sus eventos atléticos.
