This afternoon local law enforcement, along with SWAT and other agencies, conducted an operation south of the school campus(es).  White Oak ISD was in constant communication, on scene, and abreast of the situation.  White Oak ISD went into a soft-lockdown as a precaution and at no time was the school, students or staff in immediate danger. After consultation with law enforcement it was decided that school would be released as normal. White Oak ISD appreciates the relationship with White Oak PD and our local first responders.
