HEWITT, Texas – An incident near Midway High and Middle Schools lead to administrators placing the campus on a “hold” situation.
Midway High School Administration sent out a press release to parents Thursday afternoon saying there were loud, unidentified popping noises which triggered a ‘Hold’ security status. That meant students remained in 8th period classes.
The Hewitt Police Department originally told FOX44 News there was an incident in a parking lot. A Midway ISD spokesperson later told FOX44 News that the sound came from a nearby business.
Once police officers cleared the situation, students were allowed to leave.
