A Kickapoo student took an unloaded gun with them to the school campus on Tuesday.
A letter sent to parents stated that a tip was given to administrators at the school about a student who had a weapon. The reported question was questioned by staff and School Police who found the student had brought an unloaded gun to the school.
The student did not have any ammunition for the weapon, and no students or staff were harmed or reportedly at risk.
“We consider any weapon at school a serious concern,” the school email stated. “Kickapoo administrators and School Police will continue to thoroughly investigate the matter.”
The district reminded parents that if they or their students know of any potential threat to the school, they can contact the School Police 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 417-523-2911.
