Southwest Preparatory School

A Message from the Superintendent

April 22, 2014

Dear Southwest Preparatory School Family,

Please know that Southwest Preparatory School always takes the safety of our students, staff and community very seriously.  The SWPS staff is trained in managing unexpected crisis emergencies as well as preparedness for proper safety.  Two of our professional staff members regularly attend crisis management and emergency management and preparedness in-services and then train faculty and staff in these procedures and protocols. 

Recently, area agencies became aware of a threat being made toward San Antonio-area schools.  The threat was not specific to any particular school, but did allude to mass violence being committed on or around the 24th of April.  SWPS, like other school districts, is carefully monitoring police information and we are informing our staff as this situation progresses. 

Information that has come from law enforcement today is as follows.  “We are continuing to evaluate the threat with our local and federal law enforcement partners. The information gathered leads us to believe the threat is not credible, but due to the serious nature of the threat, we are taking nothing for granted. We encourage parents to operate within their own comfort levels, but all indications thus far are that it is completely safe to send your children to school. As information develops, we will continue to update. We do continue to encourage the public to call into our SAPD tip line at 225-TIPS (8477) and give any information you may have, even if you think it may be insignificant.”

We have reviewed with our staff the existing emergency operation plans as a precaution.  One of our procedures is to keep building and classroom doors locked and to closely monitor the hallways.  Visitors will be carefully screened.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you during the next few days.  We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will maintain proper safety procedures now, and in the future.


Gary L. Short, Ph.D.
