Superintendent Statement Release
Dear Parents and Staff,
On Thursday afternoon it was reported that weapons were in the possession of an elementary student. School administration and staff acted quickly and both of our School Resource Officers from Canyon County and members of Middleton Police were on site within minutes. A toy gun was discovered along with a small pocket knife. There was no threat or use of these items and there were no injuries.
I appreciate the quick response by all, and I also want to acknowledge that the incident was reported by a fellow student. "See Something, Say Something" is such an important concept we must reinforce with our students/children.
I also want to ask that we, home and school, partner on some common expectations: toy weapons, real weapons, threats/actions made seriously or as a "joke" will always be taken seriously. The atmosphere at our nation's schools are now similar to our airports - there is no room for idle comments that could cause harm or chaos let alone the possession of a toy or real weapon. There will be consequences for such actions.
Thank you for your support in helping us provide a safe learning environment.
Dr. Middleton, Superintendent
