Carthage School District statement regarding firearm incident


There has been a lot of publicity and comment about a firearm being discovered in a locked vehicle on our high school parking lot. We take issues like this very seriously in order to ensure the safety of our students and staff members.

The CHS administration and the Carthage Police Department conducted a thorough investigation in the matter. The superintendent has followed district policy in reviewing the information that has been presented, including meeting with the parents and the student in question.

As required by board policy, the Superintendent has made a final decision in this matter and has notified the student's parents of that decision.

As with all student discipline matters, the district cannot reveal information pertaining to any disciplinary action taken in respect to any student.

The safety of our students and staff members is of utmost importance to us. We take situations like this very seriously and act accordingly.
