Valley Park High School Student Arrested For Bringing A Knife To School

According to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, a Valley Park High School student was recently arrested for bringing a knife to school. Fortunately, no students or faculty were harmed. The principal sent a letter home informing other parents about what happened, assuring them that the situation was under control, and the student had been arrested.

As parents, it can be a terrifying thing to send your children off to school each day. Public schools, and even private schools, simply lack the appropriate personnel and safety protocols to ensure that weapons such as knives and guns don’t enter school property. Each year, more and more reports come out about students getting shot or stabbed while they’re in school.
