A Roosevelt Independent School District student brought a handgun to Roosevelt High School on Friday, September 25, according to a press release from Superintendent Jimmy Parker.

A fellow student reported the incident to the district the following Monday and the district and police began an investigation. Parker’s statement said the offending student did not appear to have brought the gun to threaten or cause harm to anyone.

Parker stressed school policy stating the matter is being treated as a criminal matter.

“Please be assured that our students' safety is paramount to me. We will continue to take all measures to maintain a safe and secure environment at all of our campuses. Due to state and federal privacy laws, however, and to preserve the integrity of the investigations by other authorities, the District will not disclose any further information concerning this matter. Feel free to contact me if you or your children have any safety related concerns,” concluded the release.
