A note about weapons:

This special note urges you to safeguard your child from access to any weapons at your home or any home he or she may visit.  School principals must consider referring students (no matter how young) for expulsion if they bring a dangerous weapon on campus.  No item which can cause injury or intimidate others is considered to be of minor importance.  This includes the smallest penknife and guns that may not even work.  We appreciate your vigilance and concern for all children.
