SAN ANTONIO -- Bexar County school districts are reminding students that they will be prosecuted if they make threats on campus or online.

"There certainly is a climate of fear and anxiety and anxiousness that's out there," NISD spokesperson Pascual Gonzalez said.

Three students have been arrested on NISD campuses in the last six days.

A 16-year-old male was arrested Thursday after police said he snuck onto the Stevens High School campus and refused to show an ID.

The teen is not a student at Stevens. He was arrested in a nearby neighborhood and has been charged with evading police.

Two 17-year-old Taft High School students were arrested after police said the teens made separate terroristic threats.

North East Independent School District is dealing with its first campus threats since the mass shooting in Connecticut.

A 14-year-old male was removed from Madison High School after police said he was overheard saying he was going to bring a gun to school Friday.

The teen was expected to be arrested and formally charged on Friday.

At Roosevelt High School, a 16-year-old was arrested and charged with false alarm or report.

He was accused of using social media sites to encourage fellow students to bring guns to school on Friday.

"It's just unfortunate that coupled with the Newtown tragedy and the rumor of the end of the world on Friday, that these kids have chosen that now is the time to make threats like this, and we're just not going to stand for it," NEISD spokesperson Aubrey Chancellor said.

Both districts plan to work with the Bexar County District Attorney's office to make sure these cases are prosecuted.
