Handgun rumor prompts lockdown at Cleveland ISD

Cleveland ISD officials say a lockdown at the middle school campus Monday morning was the result of an investigation into the possibility that a student was in possession of a firearm. However, the student had a paper gun, not an actual firearm.

In a statement released by the district, school officials explain:

“The Cleveland Independent School District takes student’s safety extremely serious. This letter is to inform you of an incident that occurred on the Cleveland Middle school campus this morning, Monday, February 11, 2019. The Cleveland Middle School campus was placed on Lock-Down due to a student that may have been in possession of a hand gun, after a full investigation by our Cleveland ISD Police Department they found a paper gun in the possession of a student, not a handgun. 

“Again, Cleveland Independent School District takes these types of incidents very serious, and we put student and staff’s safety as the first priority! Parents expect their children to be safe at school, and the District’s intention is to provide a safe environment for everyone.”
