A concerned parent alerted staff at Bartlesville's Madison Middle School of a missing gun at home that a student might have taken to school this morning. BPD states that a Student Resource Officer responded to the call at 9:26am. Executive Director of Communications Granger Meador says they are grateful for the parents that alerted BPS as soon as they discovered the missing gun from home.
Meador says this is a perfect example of BPS's on-going goal to minimize distractions during the school day while keeping everyone as safe as possible. Staff located the student, searched the student's backpack, and then retraced the student's steps at school finding the weapon in a restroom hidden above a ceiling tile.
