OMG!! This is awful and scary!! I e been reading the other threads and it just seems funny to me that our Super wants to talk about demoting a principal, but don't want us parents to be aware of a gun brought to school? Somebody needs to get their priorities straight real quick like, or they'll be lookin for another job like Suggs.

WE are concerned parents. Yes we have guns in our house BUT we have them locked up and out of reach of children.
Anyone who believes we are nut jobs are the ones with the real problem. We want safety for our children and nothing more. You must be the one who decided to keep it quite and anyone who would want to keep these things from parents or the community is the real nut job.

That's what's wrong with this world. "Just get over it" no one should ignore signals like this. Man, this place is going to shit by every second. Your going to tell me that your trying to tell the parents of little 3rd graders to just get over another young child bringing a gun??? Your ignorant. Since you don't care, get off this topic!! Maybe one day if you have kids they'll go to school and you'll be put in this situation and feel the fear and worry these parents have for their children!!

Apparently your the parent of the kid that brought the gun, or u wouldn't be saying all this crap. We as parents, aunts, uncles, & grandparents are concerned because our kids do go there & we want them to come home everyday. So, for u no were not gonna hush were gonna get down to the bottom of this.

Id worry more about what the teachers might do . They are more likely to premeditate , plan & carry through than a child.

Get over it! The kid and family have been punished! I woould rather know that it was handles right than worring about what might be happening! I tell you what why don't all you whiney parents take your kids to a private school and leave our kids to grow up without whining about something every day. It was taken care of! Get over it! I bet if I followed your little brats around all day I would be more afraid than for a kid who had a non working gun!

I've been following these threads concerning our schools. How do you know it has been handled? Has our super been talking about this 3rd grader's private information. As a teacher, one of the 1st things we are taught, is that we can NEVER reveal student information. So not only have you disclosed she has talked about Sherlyn Haley, now you're telling us she's talking about what has happened to a 9 year old student? I am very concerned for all teachers and students, thanks to your info, seeing as our Sup thinks is ok to discuss school matters openly with the public.

I am a parent of a KES child and I think everything was handled ok. Of course my nosiness would like to know everything about what happened. But what will making big headlines help? It was an old antique gun, no bullets, no ill intent. The end!! It was handled. Just because you don't know all of the juicy details doesn't mean it wasn't handled.

you are a IDIOT! The end?? Really? When another child brings a real gun with bullets and shoots your child is it going to be the end.. Its over when the child is takin out of school? So the problem would be handled and you would be happy! I THINK NOT so shut up and sit your stupid ass down.

Oh me. I support the parents. I feel maybe a letter from administration to ALL parents stating they are aware and measures were taken. It comes down to parents. Check those backpacks before they leave for school. What we see as a safety concern, to a child maybe a show in tell. Not all kids have evil intent. Some have child like thoughts. But to the child that made a list and had a toy gun, yes that is a concern and should be dealt with. I work in a school setting and our students are suspended or expelled even with FAKE weapons and parents become furious. So we cant have it both ways. We need to get strict zero tolerance and stand behind our school officials. Maybe we can teach this generation this will not be tolerated. Hope your school can handle your concerns and find peace for all.

A gun was brought to KES by a 3rd grader and the school and superintendent wants to keep it quite!! How dare you principal, superintendent and school board members!!!! Not even a week after the shooting of 6 year old's in Connecticut you basically ignore this issue.
My child is in the 3rd grade at KES and I'm just finding out about this. I deserve to know and so do all the other parents that have children in elementary school at KES.
To the Alcorn Co. superintendent who doesn't want negative publicity , how's this for negative. If this doesn't come out public and statements are not made, the TV stations in Tupelo and Memphis will hear about this and I'm sure Andy Wise would love to investigate this matter.
This is why our children are getting shot and killed in schools because its ignored. Ask the little quite town of Newton, Connecticut if it should be ignored.
This is not politics this is our children's lives. An emergency board meeting should be called before Jan. 14th, and notes sent home with children so parents know a meeting has been called early.
Come on KES parents lets straighten this out for our children!!!!

I would have like to have been told by the school what more have we not been told

Y'all should be careful what you say . It is a third grader that I'm sure wont understand why all of K-town wants to string him up in the middle of town . This is not a grown man . Once things are said they will be etched in his mind forever . Do you really want to fill it with hate ?
