BROWNSVILLE, TX — Benavides Elementary has been locked down since a little after 10 am today at the direction of local law enforcement officers due to a situation in a house in proximity to the school.
As per the district’s emergency operation plan, students will be relocated by school bus to the Good Shepherd Community Church located at 300 Morrison Road beginning at approximately 2 pm this afternoon.
The church has been designated as a staging area so that school officials can release Benavides students to their designated parent or guardian. The parents and guardians will need to show a photo identification.
The school is using the district notification system to inform parents and guardians about the relocation. All Benavides Elementary students and employees will be relocated to the staging area at Good Shepherd Community Church out of an abundance of caution and under the direction of local law enforcement officers.
