Today the Sloan-Hendrix Administration released the following:
This afternoon a Sloan-Hendrix School District student reported to the school resource officer that another student brought a gun to school. The school resource officer immediately went into the student’s classroom and searched the student’s bag. A handgun was discovered and confiscated without incident. Law enforcement was notified about the incident. The student who brought the weapon to school was removed from campus by authorities and will be disciplined under the District’s student handbook policies.
The District applauds the student who came forward so that the situation could be immediately investigated. Please take this opportunity to remind your students of the importance of “when you see something, say something.”
