Police Training at Valley Oaks Site June 12-13


Prior to its planned upcoming demolition, Valley Oaks Elementary School at 8390 Westview will be used for police SWAT exercises and training this Wednesday and Thursday, June 12-13. Actual, live drills will occur on the empty campus.

The planned SWAT exercises and training are sponsored by the Spring Branch ISD Police Department in coordination with the Harris County Sheriff's Department, Houston Police Department, and the Memorial Villages Police Department.

Officers and vehicles from these police agencies may be observed operating around the Valley Oaks campus on these two days. Since these law enforcement agencies will be simulating actual training exercises, sounds of gunfire and explosions may be heard.

No one other than law enforcement may be anywhere on the Valley Oaks Elementary property during these two days of law enforcement training. Safety precautions will be taken by all of the law enforcement agencies that are participating in the training and drills.

Spring Branch ISD is grateful to partner with our various law enforcement departments and pleased that our school site can be put to use for this important training.

A new elementary school will be built at the Valley Oaks Elementary site under SBISD's 2007 Bond Program.
