It has been more than three weeks since students at Andress High were put on lock down. A campus patrol woman told school leaders two males pointed a knife at her and bound her with string in the girl's bathroom.

At that time an EPISD spokeswoman said there were holes in her story.

"They are working diligently to solve this matter, but there are some discrepancies with some of the statements from campus patrol, from witnesses, and from our surveillance cameras." said EPISD Spokeswoman Berinece Zubia.

Since the alleged incident, students say things have calmed down at Andress. But Newschannel 9 has been asking questions for weeks. Questions such as, where is the campus patrol officer now? Is she still employed by the district? What does the school's surveillance video show?
Why were some students searched and not others?

Parents like Derrick Roach want to know too.

"I think that they should put out the information about what exactly what was going on because you know you wanna feel safe with your children going to school." says Roach.

EPISD has remained tight-lipped since the incident happened. Zubia told us she couldn't answer any of our questions and can't comment on anything pertaining to the incident.

It's Andress, what could one expect? We always need to prepare for the worst to come, may god forbid it to ever occur. But it's better to be safe than sorry. Some of the students there need to be seriously disciplined.
