  • Information

    Posted by Dr. Nixon-Green on 10/26/2018

    Hello Bison Family,

    As you know, we strive to provide a safe learning environment for our staff and students. Earlier today, we discovered a student brought a BB gun onto campus. Fortunately, no one was threatened or harmed.

    The incident has been reported to law enforcement and appropriate discipline actions have been taken.

    We take this very seriously. Please talk to your students and remind them that weapons are not allowed on school property.  Please also keep administration and our SROs informed of any suspicious behavior, threats and/or weapons on campus.

    Thank you for all you do for our students!

    Have a great weekend.
