On the afternoon of Wednesday, December 7, 2022, San Angelo ISD and Lone Star Middle School received a report of a student having a handgun on campus. Immediately campus leaders and district administrators began an investigation in conjunction with the San Angelo Police Department, searched the individual and campus, located and confiscated the handgun and the student is in custody. A Resource Officer is assigned to the campus to provide additional safety and security.
We take all matters of this nature seriously and will follow procedures outlined in our Student Code of Conduct. The safety of our students is our first priority. We encourage everyone to report threats of any kind to a district or school official, local law enforcement, or report the concern on our district StayAlert link on the SAISD website.
SAISD, by law, is not at liberty to publicly disclose the names of students or disciplinary actions taken. We appreciate the collaborative effort between the school and law enforcement. Student reports will be kept confidential.
