With about two weeks left in the school year, district leaders with the New Braunfels Independent School District plan to increase security at all its campuses to keep students safe.

On Sunday, parents received emails that stated more officers with the New Braunfels Police Department will be on campus until the last day of school.

The district says it has been working with the board's security committee to come up with both short and long-term safety solutions. More information about those solutions will be released in the coming months.

On Monday, Governor Greg Abbott has issued a statewide call for Texans to take part in a moment of silence at 10 a.m. to honor the memory of the victims killed at Santa Fe High School on Friday.

"In the midst of such tragedy, we pray for the victims and those mourning in Santa Fe, while we work to ensure swift and meaningful action to protect our students in schools across our state," he said in a statement.
