Lamar High School

Dear Lamar Community,

I wanted to update you on the shooting that occurred at our campus this morning. One of the students who was shot has died and another suffered non-life-threatening injuries. We are heartbroken and join all of you in keeping our students, staff and families in our hearts and prayers.

We have made the decision not to have school at Lamar Tuesday, March 21. We will have counseling services available starting on Wednesday for any staff and students who need it. We know some students left items in the building. Principal Hagman will notify you about how to retrieve those items later.

Finally, I want to commend our students and staff for their behavior. From the time the school went into lockdown to the time they were released from our reunification center, the students were exemplary representatives of our district. I want to thank you for your support.

We will update you with more information as it’s available.

Sincerely,

Dr. Marcelo Cavazos

Superintendent

Dr. Cavazos, when my son was being bullied a few months ago, the school staff did nothing. I had to DEMAND a meeting with the students who were bullying my son. Only to realize the staff was doing NOTHING to discipline the students. I had several meetings with the principals & the counselors. By the time I reached my limit & demanded a meeting with the other students parents, the mother of the other student said she hadn’t received NOT ONE CALL about the fact her child was bullying mine. My son was emotionally harassed, physically attacked, his personal property damaged. I took this all the way up to the school board, including you Dr. Cavazos. & the response was trying to intimidate me from speaking out. I recently attended a meeting at the school I moved him to, & the staff said they can’t discipline all the students acting up. They basically said they can’t do anything. Why is this happening?!!! Why are teachers not expelling the kids who misbehave? Why aren’t they being disciplined? Why is the the safety of the students who don’t misbehave being compromised to keep kids who are disrespectful in school?!

Most Blessed Sacrament is located across the parking lot of LHS and is offering a prayer vigil at 6:15 pm tomorrow in the prayer garden. Lead by Dc. Joe Ramos.

Praying for the Lamar High School family and for especially for Mr. Hagman as he leads this school with grace and love. Praying also for the families directly impacted by today’s events.

He waited and this is enough to strengthen security, it is not the first time something like this has happened, only now if we lost a young man with a whole life ahead of him, we know that the police do a good job and thank you, but we need more security inside and outside the school campus, let's not wait for what happens to adults, we ask them in the name of each parent and especially for those parents who now do not have their child with them, we ask them in the name of Jesus🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

When I heard it over the radio I started to cry is sad when this va happen like that specially in schools because I have kids too condolences and prayers to the families of this students

Praying for our community and the Lamar families impacted by this tragic event.

The Arlington ISD has set up a reunification site for Lamar High School students and families at the Arlington ISD Athletics Center at 1001 E. Division, 76011. All Lamar students inside the school will be bused to the reunification center regardless of how they got to Lamar this morning.

Parents and guardians can begin picking up students at approximately 12 p.m. The process of clearing the classrooms at Lamar is ongoing, which could impact the reunification time. Parents/guardians need to check in at the natatorium, which is located next to the Athletics Center. Please bring your identification and follow the same process for checking your student out of the school. Please enter the Athletics Center from the entrance located off Division Street.

We will continue to provide updates throughout the day.

Sad to hear this about Lamar. It has gone to crap and it saddens me. This use to be the elite upscale high-school in Arlington now its as bad as Bowie and Sam Houston. It has become as bad as east Arlington over time. Problem is they are to concerned of their image and funnel all attention to the damn entertainment district. Hoity Toity hotels and stadiums that they have forgotten how to manage the city properly. I hate this for my old stomping grounds. I am glad I moved out if the crap hike known as Arlington.
