Dear Parents/Guardians:

This is Cram Middle School Principal Gary Bugash. In an effort to keep you informed of matters happening within our community, I want to make you aware of an incident that occurred on campus.

We received a report of a weapon on campus. School staff and CCSD Police investigated and recovered a firearm. There were no injuries and no threats to the school. However, it is against the law to have a firearm on campus and a student was arrested.

Please take this opportunity to discuss school safety with your child. If they ever face a situation where they are unsure whether or not to share information with an adult, please remind them to never hesitate reporting anything that may be a safety issue.

Students and parents can also make reports through the SafeVoice reporting system by calling 1-833-216-SAFE (7233), through the website at or through the free downloadable phone app.

Please know that this is a police matter, so we are unable to discuss specifics. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to call us at 702-799-7020.

Thank you.

Gary Bugash, Principal, Cram Middle School
