From: Dr. XXXX. XXXXX, District Administrator
School District of XXXXXXX
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 18, 2013
Late last evening XXXXX school officials learned of an incident potentially involving weapons (ultimately determined to be an unloaded BB gun and pellet gun) and several students at the XXXXX Middle School. Upon learning of the situation, school officials responded immediately and were in contact with the XXXX Police throughout the evening as they conducted their investigation. Around midnight, the District was informed that the BB and pellet gun had been confiscated and the threat had been mitigated. Working in conjunction with the police, it was determined that XXXXX Schools were safe for student and staff attendance today.
While this continues to be an active investigation both for the police and for the School District, appropriate student disciplinary action is occurring according to School Board policy to ensure student safety.
Please be assured that the safety of your children and our schools is of utmost priority.

I would be on edge, but at least it was handled & they kept parents informed & the students safe. Unfortunately, you have kids who will continue to do stupid things & parents/guardians who are not responsible about locking their guns up. Glad it all turned out OK
