The O'Donnell Middle School sent out notification to parents Wednesday afternoon that a student came to school with an unloaded plastic gun in a backpack.
"This item was confiscated by school administration.
There were no BB's with this student, and no students or staff were ever
in any danger. The OMS administration worked cooperatively with the
Stoughton Police Department to ensure that all proper safety protocols
were followed in response to this incident. Student safety is our top
priority. In an effort to keep our families informed, we are sending out
this information. Thank you," read the notification."
Dr. Marguerite Rizzi, the Stoughton Superintendent of Schools said, "The matter was handled very appropriately by the administration in my view."
