Bammel Middle Parents and Guardians,
Please be advised that a student brought a small kitchen knife to school today in their jacket. As soon as it was reported, it was quickly confiscated by school staff, reported to school administration, and appropriate disciplinary action has been taken.
Although no students were harmed and it was never used in a threatening way, the safety of our students is our top priority at Bammel Middle. We take matters like these very seriously. Please check your child’s belongings in the morning before they leave for school and emphasize the seriousness of bringing inappropriate and illegal items to school. As part of our end-of-year safety protocol, we have asked the students to not carry backpacks or large purses to school for the remainder of the school year. In addition, talk with your student about the importance of reporting anything that might be a danger or seem threatening.
