HISD officials quickly ended the rumor with this statement:
“The rumor about Yates being sold is FALSE. It is untrue and unfounded. HISD is working with the community to rebuild Yates at its current location through our 2012 bond program.”
We are glad to hear that the Yates High School legacy will live on!
