FOOTHILL FARMS, CA (MPG) - Due to the quick actions of staff at Foothill High School on Monday, May 9, a firearm was confiscated from a student after the student attempted to leave the school office during questioning and a search.

There are no reports the weapon was ever brandished. Twin Rivers police officers and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department responded immediately. The student was taken into custody by law enforcement. Additional mental health experts were dispatched to the site for students and staff.

Providing a safe and secure learning environment is a top priority of Twin Rivers Unified. The district proactively takes measures to address these situations safely and expeditiously. Weapons of any kind are never permitted on our campuses and there are serious consequences for students who are found in possession of a weapon.

We are grateful to the quick actions of our staff and law enforcement this morning.
