Dear Parents and Guardians,
This morning two Switzerland County Elementary School students reported to their teacher that another Switzerland County Elementary School student had brought a gun to school. Officer Leap, our school resource officer, was present in the building and immediately responded. Officer Leap did a search of the student’s locker and discovered the elementary student had brought two plastic guns to school with an orange tip.
While there is no current threat to the school we want parents to be aware of the situation. We want to thank the students for coming to an adult after getting off the bus and Officer Leap’s immediate response. Please continue to tell your children if they see something to say something to a nearby adult. Also, parents please remind your children to never make threats or bring anything that could be seen as a weapon, even if it’s a toy.
Mr. Rod Hite, Superintendent
Switzerland County School Corporation
