COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - After a preschool student brought a gun to a Columbus elementary school, parents are voicing their concerns about the incident and how they were notified.
Several parents called our newsroom Tuesday evening to say their student brought home a letter from the principal of Rigdon Road Elementary earlier that day.
The letter states that a Pre-K male brought the unloaded pistol to school in his pocket.
However, some parents say they didn't receive a letter at all and only heard about the incident from others. Many believe parents should have been notified by phone.
According to the letter, the gun was discovered after it fell out of the child's pocket.
The letter urges parents to check their students' pockets and book bags before school and review the district's behavior code and discipline policy with their children.
