Important Information: rumor clarification

Dear Slauson Parents and Guardians,

As we know in a small community such as Slauson rumors can be spread quickly. I want to clarify rumors that are circulating among the students about an incident with a non-functional air soft gun at school today.

Based on the initial investigation a student brought this non-functioning plastic air-soft gun to school today. It was shown to some students in the hallway, passed around and quickly was thrown out a bathroom window where it was found.

Due to the misinformation circulating with students and with the weekend upon us I want to make clear that no one was in danger and we are dealing with the student(s) involved.

If the "dinner table" conversation turns to this incident please share this information with your students.

If you have any questions please contact me.

Christopher Curtis, Ed. D.
