Before school started on Friday, December 20th, another firearm was confiscated from a student at Smylie Wilson Middle School, making this the 3rd one to be confiscated in the past few weeks.

A statement from Lubbock ISD says that a report was made to an administrator by another student and that campus administration and Lubbock ISD Police investigated the case. The suspect was arrested and no threats were made to students or staff.

Campus and district administration have decided that beginning Tuesday, January 7th, 2020, a clear bag policy will be implemented for Smylie Wilson.

Each student will be provided with a clear backpack and other types of bags will not be allowed. Students will also be provided a lightweight jacket as part of their standardized dress with no other jackets or coats allowed.
