RE: Toy Gun Reported at Onondaga Nation School

Dear Parents and Families:

I am writing to inform you about a report of a plastic toy airsoft gun that was brought to school by an
elementary student at the Onondaga Nation School. The student brought the plastic toy gun to school
and showed it to two other students on the bus. I am sharing this information with all families in an
effort to be fully transparent and to dispel any rumors surrounding this issue.

Please be mindful that the student did not bring the toy gun to school with any malicious intent and
students were not in danger. The matter is being handled in accordance with the district’s code of
conduct.Due to student privacy laws, the district is prohibited from sharing any additional details
regarding the incident.

As a reminder, students are prohibited from bring weapons, including toy weapons, to school. Thank
you in advance for your cooperation and understanding regarding this incident. Please know that the
safety and security of our students is our number one priority.
