Unloaded Plastic Gun Found in Backpack at O'Donnell Middle School

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."

So this is what has happened to our world? The kid had a toy gun, without any ammo. Can't believe we waste our time on this.

The kid discovered it in his backpack while on the bus and realized it was an accident. He immediately went to the office to explain the situation, and realized that he made a huge mistake.
