Two Rehoboth Road Middle School students face felony weapon charge

STAFF REPORT :::

Two Rehoboth Road Middle School students face felony charges in connection to alleged weapons incidents.

According to a letter issued to RRMS parents, both incidents took place within one week.

“A student reported seeing the knife in the possession of another student. The knife was confiscated without incident. This is the second occasion within the past week of a knife in the possession of a student,” the letter read. “Both incidents resulted in the students being charged with felony possession of a weapon in a school safety zone. This is a mandatory felony charge based on current Georgia law.”

The letter goes on to say the school administration will be visiting classrooms to discuss school safety as well as the consequences of bringing weapons to school.

Parents were also urged to speak to their children about these incidents and the importance of not bringing anything that could be considered a weapon on school grounds.
