Hello MWSD Families, Today, Tuesday, October 11, there was an incident involving a firearm at Midd-West Middle School. At 7:45am, MWMS administration was made aware about a student possessing a firearm that was shown to several peers on the bus. Immediately, our school police, Officer Mall was contacted while the building principal, located the student. The student was escorted to the office where he was searched and interviewed by the school police and administration. This occurred prior to the school day starting. Upon further investigation and search, a firearm and ammunition were located, retrieved, and secured by Officer Mall. At that time, MWSD Police contacted Middleburg Police Department who arrived promptly to continue the investigation. A building sweep was conducted and an all clear was given by the authorities. The student left in police custody and will not be returning to school. At this time all students are safe and continuing their regular school day. We thank all individuals who reported this immediately to school officials. Please know student safety is our top priority and we will always follow up with leads that are reported. Because of the quick work and all clear from the authorities, we will continue to operate as normal. Any questions, please contact your child’s building. Thank you for your continued support, MWSD Adminstration
