TMI-The Episcopal School of Texas is aware of an incident on September 14, 2012, involving one of its students. The incident did not take place on campus. The student s parents and authorities were notified. Both to respect the privacy of the family and because there is an ongoing investigation by the San Antonio Police Department, we cannot comment further.
