Travis High School Placed on Lockout After Reports of an Escaped Prisoner

FORT BEND ISD (Covering Fort Bend News) – The Travis high School campus was placed on a brief, precautionary “lockout” this afternoon as local law enforcement agencies followed up on a report of a possible escaped prisoner. The lockout was lifted after local agencies confirmed there were no prisoners who had escaped.

During a lockout, campuses verify exterior doors are locked, students who are outside are brought indoors, and visitor access is limited while instruction inside the building continues as normal. The idea is to secure the school from a potential threat that is outside of the building.
