Oh my. I came home from work on Tuesday night and there was a letter on the counter stating that the school was letting the parents know that the previous day a student brought a gun to school and showed several students. He was reported and was arrested. This was at the large district school. difficult child goes to a small school, but takes one class (last class) at this district school. Yesterday in the paper there was a big article. He was a 15 year old boy. Brought a small pistol. Showed many students and made the comment, "now we can rule the school" He was arrested. The gun was not loaded and they found no amunition. This is what really gets me. The school said they did NOT lock down the school because it was close to dismissal time. OK... Lets put 3000 kids in the hallway at dismissal time and a kid with a gun. They did not know the gun was not loaded. They did not know that until they arrested him. They put all these kids and teachers in danger. Wow...I am really upset about that.
