Rumor and Information Hotline - 972-882-KIDS

When events such as bomb threats occur, it can be very scary for parents, students and school employees. During these difficult times, rumors abound. To provide our community with an avenue to get the facts and share ideas and concerns, the Mesquite ISD has established a Rumor Control and Information Hotline. The hotline number is 972-882-KIDS.

This hotline will be manned during the school day, Monday through Friday. In the event of a campus emergency or rumor of violence, you may call this hotline number to get immediate and accurate information about the situation or express your concerns or suggestions to district staff. We respect the fact that as parents, you need to know the truth about situations that may affect your children. We are also willing to listen to any concerns or ideas you may have regarding campus safety issues. In addition, please remember to stayed tuned to our district radio station, KEOM-88.5 FM and our district website, for the latest MISD information. KEOM is one of the most effective ways we have to deliver information about our schools, and we will use it to broadcast instructions if necessary.

Be assured that the district continues to take every precaution to ensure the safety of our students. Whenever the slightest hint of danger comes to light, it is investigated immediately and thoroughly by the proper authorities who are trained to handle such situations.
