 "I want parents to know that we here at Spring Branch and Northbrook High School are committed to making sure that when they send their child to school, they return to them the same way they sent them," Hyder said.

The front door will also be the only point of entry at all Spring Branch ISD campuses. Lastly, there will be enhanced entry and exit procedures for all visitors.
