Dear Parents and Partners,
North Bullitt High School and Bullitt County Public Schools are dedicated to maintaining a strong partnership with parents in our effort to provide the very best education for students. Key to that partnership is open communication. For this reason, I want to make you aware of a situation we had today. Before I continue, let me clearly state that there was no weapon in our school.
This morning, a student found a bullet in a classroom on the floor. We went to soft lock down to investigate and through our investigation a student was found who had some casings and cartridge parts. Ms. Britt and SRO Hedges brought the student to a secured location and searched the student and belongings. No weapons were found; the student had the cartridge parts from the shooting range. The student will be given consequences per Bullitt County School’s Code of Student Conduct.
These incidents disrupt our student’s learning and result in severe student consequences. We need all of our parents assistance to make sure that these types of items are not coming into school.
Our teachers and staff are diligent in their duties of student security and take every threat seriously. We practice safety procedures regularly, and are confident in our ability to provide for the security and education of our students. Please do not hesitate to give me a call if you have any further questions.
