Dear Parents/Guardians of Lake Ridge Middle School Students,
I would like to reassure you about an incident that occurred during a routine fire drill this afternoon. While they were outdoors, some of our students spotted a person carrying what turned out to be a pellet gun in the nearby woods. The individual was an older student. No pellets were fired and no one was ever in any danger. Still the incident may have been frightening to some. So, please take a moment to reassure students that this was just a pellet gun, and they were safe at all times. Police are looking into the matter as part of their ongoing efforts to protect students, staff, and school property. Thank you.
