Stun gun at Woodmere Middle School open gym


Hewlett-Woodmere school district officials said that a student brought a stun gun to open gym basketball on Jan. 20 at Woodmere Middle School.

In a letter sent to the parents and guardians of Woodmere Middle School students, school officials said the district contacted the Nassau County police and are cooperating with the subsequent investigation.

"While we are unable to share additional confidential information, please know that disciplinary action will commence, as approriate," Barbara Giese, the district's executive director of communication, wrote in the letter.

"Please speak with your child about the consequences of bringing a weapon onto school property," she added.
