Message from Principal
October 19, 2017
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that school officials at Sheldon High School received a report from a student who observed another student disposing of a handgun in a restroom garbage can. School officials immediately contacted law enforcement and officers quickly responded, investigated and recovered a handgun based on the report. Officials have also identified and detained the suspect and are continuing the investigation.
This is a very serious matter as the safety of our students and staff is a top priority. Weapons, of any kind, are strictly prohibited on our campus. Please take some time to remind your student that any student found in possession of a weapon may face consequences up to expulsion and arrest.
We are sharing this information with you as part of our ongoing efforts to keep you informed about incidents that affect our campus. If you have any questions about this incident, please feel free to contact me at (916) 681-7500.
