Madison City Schools Superintendent Robby Parker says he is addressing a "serious matter" involving a student who had a gun just outside Discovery Middle School.
Parker says the district received information through its "Text to Protect" system about a student in possession of a gun at the end of the school day Thursday. When the gun was confiscated, it was found to be unloaded. It is now in the possession of Madison police.
While police are investigating, Parker says the district is focusing on campus safety and he promises to investigate any threat made.
Parker said the Discovery Middle School administration successfully handled the matter by addressing the situation "immediately and aggressively."
Parker encourages students to text (256) 604-2345 if they recognize a potential threat while at school.
