A student that attends County Line Elementary accidentally brought a handgun to school in her bag this morning and immediately reported it to the teacher who took possession of the loaded handgun. At no time was the handgun displayed or shown to any others in the class. The school contacted the New Braunfels Police Department immediately to report the incident.
The parent of the child was notified and has taken full responsibility for inadvertently leaving the handgun in the child’s bag. Since it has been determined that there was not an intent to commit an offense by those involved, this situation was resolved without incident.
We greatly appreciate the assistance of the New Braunfels Police Department in handling this situation and helping NBISD ensure a safe and secure environment for our students.
