Here is the text of the letter they sent home to all parents…
“Dear CCSD Parent or Guardian,
In order to continue with preventative measures to increase student and school safety, the Clark County School District Board of School Trustees passed a resolution regarding the secure storage of firearms.
CCSD would like to remind all parents about the importance of safe gun storage in their homes as well as any homes their children may visit.
Every year, nearly 350 children under the age of 18 unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else. An estimated 4.6 million American children live in households with at least one firearm. Research shows secure firearm storage practices are associated with an 85 percent reduction in the risk of self-inflicted and unintentional firearm injuries among children and teens.
Nevada state law requires adults to securely store their firearms in cases where a child is likely to gain access to the firearm.
CCSD will continue to work with local law enforcement agencies, health agencies and nonprofits to collaborate and increase efforts to inform District parents of their obligations regarding secure storage of firearms in their homes.
Keeping students, teachers, and staff from the threat of gun violence should be the responsibility of all stakeholders within our school communities. For more information on secure firearm storage, please visit: https://www.safefirearmsstorage.org/start-a-conversation/“
