BB gun found in KLR

June 13, 2017

On Tuesday, June 13, administrators found a fourth-grade student in possession of a BB gun on campus after another student alerted a school safety staff member. Although the student did not express any intent to harm or threaten violence, the student did show the BB gun to other students. The parents of those students have been contacted directly by the school’s administration team.

The district does not tolerate the possession of any type of weapon on district property and the student will face disciplinary proceedings in accordance with the district’s Code of Conduct and Board of Education policy #5300.30.

When a student violates the policy, the district follows strict procedures to ensure the ongoing safety of our students, staff members and visitors to our campus. A student found to be in possession of a weapon – in this case, a BB gun– is immediately reported to law enforcement, suspended from school and referred to a hearing with the superintendent of schools. This process can result in additional penalties imposed by the superintendent or the courts.

If you have any questions about the district’s safety procedures and protocols, please contact the main office of the school which your child attends.
