In Oklahoma, parents can be fined if their child brings a weapon to school. In North Carolina, failure to store firearms safely in homes where children are present can result in prosecution and fines. Twenty-one states have enacted laws mandating gun-free school zones and imposing sharply increased penalties for firearms possession or use in such areas. Florida and Maryland are among the states that have set up special statewide organizations to help address school-related violence, including gun use. More than two dozen states have increased judicial or prosecutorial discretion to try youth involved in especially violent offenses as adults.
All Muir students should have received the SJUSD Student Handbook. There is a plethora of valuable information inside and none more important than the very first page which is the acknowledgement of handbook and technology acceptable use form. You and your student must sign this front page and turn it in to their teacher to be able to use the technology resources on campus. The back page has optional choices on photography taken at school and release of information stipulations, but the front page is mandatory to be signed by student and parent and returned as soon as possible. Your explicit attention to this matter is appreciated.
