The purpose of this letter is to inform you that today school officials at Elk Grove High School received a report about a student in possession of a gun on campus. School officials immediately notified law enforcement who immediately responded and investigated.
Officers searched the student in question and found no weapon in the student’s possession. As an added precaution, officers searched the entire school. Officers found a handgun and ammunition beneath the bleachers in the gym. The investigation also produced a second suspect and officers arrested both suspects.
The safety of our students and staff is a top priority at our school and we tell our students, staff, parents and community “if you see something, or know something, say something.” We are proud of our students who reported their concern. Out of an abundance of caution, additional officers will remain on campus during dismissal.
Please remind your student that weapons, of any kind, are strictly prohibited on our campus and 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) 686-7741.
