Nichols Student Incident/ Student Are Safe

Parents, 

We want to make you aware of a very serious situation that occurred today at Nichols Middle School. This morning, our principal conducted a search of a classroom at the request of one of our teachers because the teacher smelled marijuana in the classroom. The search resulted in the discovery of a small bag of marijuana, a clip, and a gun. Our principal then notified the district's Chief of Security, who contacted local law enforcement. After notifying the student's parents, the student was subsequently transported by law enforcement to the Youth Detention Center. We are thankful for the quick thinking of our teacher and principal and the speedy response of our district's security and local law enforcement. Parents, we want you to know that your children's safety is of the utmost importance to us, and we will remain focused on keeping them protected at all times.
