Dear LHS Parents and Guardians,

I am writing to you with very upsetting news. Today, local law enforcement arrested Sarah Fowlkes,
a teacher at LHS, for an improper relationship with a student.

On the afternoon of Friday, March 10th, the LHS administration received a concerning report. The
principal notified district administration, and we immediately contacted law enforcement and Child
Protective Services for investigation.

Fowlkes will not return to the school district. The district is sending notice of the conduct to the
State Board for Educator Certification. 

Every day, you trust your children to our care, and it is a responsibility we do not take lightly.  As a
parent of a Lockhart ISD student, I join you in feeling anger and disappointment in what happened.
As an administrator, I will always take swift action against anyone who would violate the sacred
trust between students and educators.

Please take time to speak to your child about what has happened. If any student or parent has
information about this situation, please contact the Lockhart Police Department at 512-398-4401.

The campus will have counselors available to meet with any student who needs or wants support.
In the meantime, if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at
susan.bohn@lockhart.txed.net. I will be checking emails and will follow up with you as soon as


Susan K. Bohn
Superintendent of Schools
Lockhart Independent School District
