Orbeez airsoft gun challenge

We have had multiple incidents at the high school level of students bringing the airsoft guns into school and shooting them at teachers and students. The recent incidents are being handled with the TCSD Case Management Team as well as through the Tooele City Police Department.

This type of behavior is not tolerated and is considered a safe school’s violation. It can result in suspension and referral to juvenile court.

We ask that parents and guardians speak with their students about the consequences and potential dangers of participating in these types of “games/challenges.” Weapons of any kind are not allowed on school property.

We also encourage you to speak with your child about reporting to an adult when something does not feel right. With more students and staff members reporting in our school district we have been able to address situations immediately before it becomes too late. Reports can also be made anonymously using the SafeUT app.

For more information about our safe schools policies go to Board Docs located on the district website at www.tooeleschools.org, under the Board of Education tab.
