HISD Statement on August School Bus Incident 

On August 30, 2011, the Houston ISD transportation department was asked to review general conditions on a school bus that transports students with special needs from Thompson Elementary School. As part of this review, HISD officials viewed security videos from the bus. One of those videos, filmed on August 25, 2011, appeared to show three male students engaged in inappropriate activity. On August 30, the Thompson Elementary principal notified the parents of the students who were involved. In addition, the Houston Police Department and Child Protective Services also were notified and HPD took the lead on the criminal investigation.

On Wednesday, January 4, 2012, Houston police took two 10-year-old Thompson students into custody. Parents of the students who were involved in the incident are being offered counseling services for their children.
