From Spring Hill ISD:

Spring Hill ISD works to protect the well-being of our students, and as much as possible, to provide a learning environment without disruption. Due to the media attention given to recent public and school shootings, guns in schools have received a lot of attention. At our schools we want our students to feel safe and not threatened so they can concentrate on school activities. The JH administration asked that students not wear shirts at school that depicted knives, guns or other weapons.

Please understand that no student has been suspended or placed in ISS for wearing a shirt related to weapons. However, we will enforce our dress code as necessary to minimize disruptions at school, including protecting other students from messages or images that are threatening, promote violence, or otherwise disrupt the educational environment. The shirt that is pictured on Facebook is not the shirt that the student wore to school that day.

Again, no student has been suspended or placed in ISS for dress code due to wearing a shirt in reference to weapons. Due to student confidentiality I cannot speak publicly about a specific student's situation.

Please contact your student's campus if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Wes Jones
Superintendent

Spring Hill ISD
