ROBSTOWN, Texas — School safety was the focus of a meeting last night involving Robstown ISD officials, parents and area law enforcement.

Parents were given information about how teachers and students handle emergency situations on school campuses.

District officials explained what determines a need for a lockout or an evacuation.

“The support that we have from them in knowing that they want to keep us safe and that they're here to keep our kids safe is the best feeling in the world,” said Kelsey Cook, Robstown ISD public relations director.

Parents are reassured the district is concerned about these situations.

“There's people there that will take care of her and know what to do in case an unfortunate event happens,” Robstown parent Tanya Olmeda said.

The safety protocols followed by Robstown ISD are set by the Texas School Safety Center.

It provides safety and security information for grade schools and junior colleges across the state.
