Suspicious package at Grand Prairie HS found to be empty

A package was found on the front steps of Grand Prairie High School around 7:45 am Monday morning.

School district spokesman Sam Buchmeyer said with the recent events in Austin, the district contacted the Grand Prairie Police.

He said the package was located at a non-entry point for students, so students and traffic were kept away for the area while the investigation was conducted.

Police and Fire Investigators determined the package to be empty and never posed a risk to the campus.

Buchmeyer said the school was back to its normal schedule.
