Many Copperas Cove families are asking themselves when things will be normal again, after 11 bomb threats across their school district disrupt school for two weeks.
Nine were made last week with eight arrests, and then there were two more incidents this week, resulting in another arrest.
Now parents and kids say they're ready to move on.
With two kids in Copperas Cove ISD, Alfonsa Ward is ready to close the book on the chaos surrounding the numerous bomb threats.
She wants her 16-year old son Matthew to be able to move on with his education.
"With everything that's been going on, his life is just put to a stand-still, and so is ours. It's just frustrating," said Alfonsa.
Matthew's classes alternate from "blue days" to "gold days," and so do the terroristic threats at the high school.
So now he says evacuations have just become part of his schedule.
"Now everybody knows just blue day comes during certain hours, make sure you have all your stuff, and bring all your stuff out to the evacuation that's probably going to happen," said Matthew.
School was canceled three days last week, and two early release days were added on to this week.
For parents who have to work, after school YMCA programs at elementary schools will go on, and for a dollar a day, older kids can go to the Copperas Cove YMCA between the hours of noon and 6 p.m.
"It's somewhere safe for them to go. They have basketball, they just know that they can come here and just relax, we have pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, that kind of stuff," said Doreen Vasseur with the YMCA.
But as police and the school district investigate rumors of a mass shooting threat at the high school on Friday, Alfonsa says she's keeping Matthew close.
"He's definitely staying home, because I don't want to take that risk. I really don't," she said.
Police are offering a $2,000 reward to anyone with clues leading to an arrest and prosecution.
