BURNET — The Burnet Consolidated Independent School District cancelled Meet the Bulldogs, which was scheduled for 6 p.m. Aug. 19.

According to a news release from the district, the event was cancelled because of “unforeseen circumstances.”

“We have received information today that there was a tragic incident involving one of our Burnet High School students. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families impacted by this tragedy,” Superintendent Keith McBurnett said. “Our first priority is to take care of the emotional needs of our students, and we are working with district counselors and local pastors to offer needed support.”

With no Meet the Bulldogs event, the public has been invited to the football team’s Aug. 21 scrimmage against Wimberley at Bulldog Field that begins at 5:30 p.m.

According to the district, the booster club will be serving hot dogs before the scrimmage and students will be recognized.
