Handgun in Washighton Elementary Tuesday
Parents could breathe a sigh of relief after it was reported that a third-grade student who brought a handgun to Washington Elementary School Tuesday did not act violently. Superintendent Greg Upham confirmed that the incident on Billings’ West End happened at the end of the school day. Upham said “We definitely consider this a very serious issue. We’re extremely concerned when a child brings a handgun to school. The child obviously made a poor decision but did not have any intent to hurt or harm anyone,” Upham added he does not know if the student will be in class Wednesday and did not say if the gun was loaded. Parents of students in that class received a call from the school’s principal, Deedee Larson, and the district planned additional communications Tuesday. Get the whole story at; KTVQ.com.
