FISD parents and staff,
Late last night a stolen gun was recovered by the Friendswood Police Department in a student’s home. Based on a student tip received late in the afternoon, campus administrators began an investigation that revealed the possible possession of a handgun on campus. An investigation began immediately and lasted late into the night. We have now learned that the student had received it from another student during the day at FHS.
The students involved will receive swift and appropriate consequences in accordance with school board policy. The criminal investigation is ongoing and being conducted by Friendswood Police Department with the assistance of FISD administrators.
The Superintendent would like to thank the student who first reported what he had been told to campus administration as well as the parents and Friendswood Police Department for their cooperation with the administration in investigating and quickly resolving this matter.
