A search of the building is underway by Garland police, the district said.

In a letter to parents, the district said only juniors taking graduation exams were on campus at the time and the rest of the student body was not expected to arrive until 2 p.m.

Students who had transportation were allowed to leave campus and those who were due to report later in the afternoon are asked to stay away. The district said the campus will remain closed for the rest of the day and all Greenville High School activities have been canceled.
