Dear Basic Academy Families:

As always, we want to keep you informed of important matters happening within our school community.

Today, CCSD Police investigated a report of a weapon on campus. A gun was recovered and a student was arrested without incident. There were no threats made to students or staff.

Due to privacy laws, we are unable to discuss individual student matters, however this event serves as a reminder that weapons of any kind are not permitted on campus. As it has been communicated multiple times, the Clark County School District is actively pursuing any and all legal actions against students who engage in violence and violate the CCSD Student Code of Conduct.

I am asking that parents and guardians talk to their students about the ramifications of breaking the Student Code of Conduct.
