ARLINGTON — Extra police officers were dispatched to Young Junior High School on Monday after a threatening note was found outside over the weekend.

It was described as a "kill list" naming 10 teachers from Young and seven from Miller Elementary, according to a source within the district.

Arlington ISD sent home a four-paragraph letter to parents Monday afternoon explaining what happened.

"Enhanced security procedures with additional police and school district personnel were put in place this morning," wrote principal Kelly Hastings. "The [Arlington Police Department] is still investigating this incident to identify the person responsible for making this threat."

That will continue until more information is known about this situation, said AISD spokeswoman Amy Casas on Monday night.

"The police believe there is no imminent threat to students or staff at either campus. However, the district and the police department will not take this investigation lightly," she added.

Still, neither the district nor police would reveal what the note detailed.

"Officers are investigating," said Arlington police spokeswoman Tiara Richard. "However, we are not in a position in the investigation to disclose the content of the note."

The principal said Arlington Police continue to try to identify who left the note.
