Dear Bradley Parents or Guardians,
As you know, maintaining safety and security on our campus is our highest priority. To help dispel any inaccurate information, this letter is to inform you of an incident that we handled on campus today.
At approximately 8:30 a.m., front office staff was alerted by several students that another student may have a weapon on campus. The office staff immediately notified administration, who identified the student and went directly to his classroom. The student in question was removed from class and was found with a gun in his pocket. The gun was secured by the North East Police Department (NEPD). The student was arrested and will face serious disciplinary consequences.
We applaud the students who came forward and alerted the school. We are treating this situation with the seriousness it deserves, and we will not tolerate any inappropriate items at our school. Please take a moment to talk with your child about the importance of talking to an adult or reporting anything they believe is inappropriate.
We must all work together parents, staff and community to provide a safe environment. If you have questions, you can contact the school at 210-356-2600.
