Fossil Ridge High School has currently been evacuated due to a bomb threat. As it is the last day of school, the District does not believe it to be a credible threat, however, we must take all reports of this nature seriously. The campus has been evacuated and the Fort Worth Police Department is responding to the scene. As soon as local law enforcement officials have cleared the building, classes will be allowed to resume on the planned exam/early release schedule.
