Edcouch-Elsa ISD Library News 2021
Attention: Edcouch-Elsa ISD Community October 6, 2021 Dear Parents/Guardians, This letter is to inform you that one of our students brought a fake gun to Ruben C. Rodriguez Elementary today. Our district is committed to the safety and education of all our students. We also want to clearly communicate with parents about safety issues when they arise. The administration of the Ruben C. Rodriguez Elementary received this information early this morning. The student was immediately questioned, and the fake (replica) gun was recovered. At no time was the fake gun brought out at school or used to threaten other students. The superintendent’s office and security were notified. The school will impose disciplinary measures. The student involved will be subject to school board policy and appropriate laws. Please discuss this incident with your children and emphasize that it is against school and district rules to bring weapons (real or fake) of any type to school. Also, please emphasize the importance of telling you or a staff member if there is a suspected weapon at school. In this way, we are all working together to keep our children and schools safe. Please feel free to call or email your campus if you have any questions or concerns. Sincerely, Greg Rodriguez Dr. Greg Rodríguez Superintendent Edcouch-Elsa ISD
6 de octubre de 2021 Estimados padres / tutores: Esta carta es para informarles que uno de nuestros estudiantes trajo un falsa arma a la Primaria Ruben C. Rodríguez hoy. Nuestro distrito está comprometido con la seguridad y educación de todos nuestros estudiantes. También queremos comunicarnos claramente con los padres sobre los problemas de seguridad cuando surjan. La administración de la Primaria Rubén C. Rodríguez recibió esta información esta mañana temprano. El estudiante fue interrogado de inmediato y se recuperó la pistola falsa (réplica). En ningún momento se sacó la pistola falsa en la escuela ni se usó para amenazar a otros estudiantes. Se notificó a la oficina del superintendente y seguridad. La escuela impondrá medidas disciplinarias. El estudiante involucrado estará sujeto a la política de la junta escolar y las leyes apropiadas. Por favor discuta este incidente con sus hijos y enfatice que es contra las reglas de la escuela y del distrito traer armas (reales o falsas) de cualquier tipo a la escuela. Además, enfatice la importancia de decirle a usted oa un miembro del personal si hay un arma sospechosa en la escuela. De esta manera, todos estamos trabajando juntos para mantener seguros a nuestros niños y escuelas. No dude en llamar o enviar un correo electrónico a su campus si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud. Atentamente, Greg Rodriguez Dr. Greg Rodríguez Superintendente Edcouch-Elsa ISD

Thank you, Mr. Casas, for all that you do! #TeamRCR #EEStrongerTogether #NoLimits!
