Girl took pellet gun to Pioneer Trails

October 23rd, 2012 in News

A Pioneer Trail Elementary student faces up to a 10-day suspension - and a superintendent's review of her situation that could lead to up to another 180 days, after she acknowledged on Friday that she brought a pellet gun to school Thursday.

David Luther, the Jefferson City School District spokesman, said "a parent contacted a teacher on Friday morning, to let her know she had heard a rumor about a threat ... that a student may have brought a pellet gun to school on Thursday and had made a threat towards two other students. No one was told about it at school on Thursday."

After getting that call, Luther said, "The teacher searched the bag and found the pellet gun."
