Crackdown at Madison Following Gun Incident

 
Posted Thursday, May 1st 2014 @ 4am

  Some changes are being made at Madison High School following two incidents earlier this week, 1200 WOAI news reports.

 

  In a letter sent to parents by Madison Principal Debra Aceves-Torres obtained by 1200 WOAI news, the school says officials are prohibiting any backpacks, book bags, large purses, and gym bags on campus, unless they are clear plastic or see-through mesh.

 

  "There continues to be rumors of possible weapons on campus," Aceves-Torres writes.

 

  She says any student who brings a bag that is not made of the approved materials will have the bag confiscated and held in the Assistant Principal's office.

 

  Aceves-Torres also warns that the doors to the buildings on campus will not be open until 7:45AM.

 

  "I realize this will pose an inconvenience to students, however, we are thinking of the safety of all students," she writes.

 

  A student brought a backpack to Madison on Monday which contained two loaded handguns and other ammunition magazines, and the student somehow managed to get an AK-47 rifle into a wastebasket in a restroom.

 

  On Tuesday, a prank text message sent by a Judson High School student warning of weapons on campus prompted another lockdown at Madison.

 

  The tough new restrictions will remain in place for the rest of the school year, and will then be examined over summer vacation.
