Weapons were found on students at Sto-Rox Jr./Sr. High School during two separate incidents Oct. 28.
In the first incident, a teacher found a gun in a student’s backpack at a security checkpoint when students were entering school.
Security was present, and the teacher called administration to the checkpoint. Administration contacted the Stowe Police Department who responded immediately. The student and their family were interviewed by police. The student was sent home.
In the second incident, a teacher found a weapon in another child’s belongings at a security checkpoint. The teacher confiscated the weapon, and an administrator interviewed the child, who was sent home. At this time it is not known if police will bring charges in the first incident.
