No gun found at Yuma school

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in southwestern Arizona say no gun was found after a Yuma school was evacuated in response to an unconfirmed report of a student possibly having a weapon.

Yuma police say they responded to Rancho Viejo Elementary School about 10 a.m. Tuesday and did a "systematic search" of the campus.

City spokeswoman Martha Guzman says school buses took students to another school several miles away where parents picked them up.

The report of a gun also prompted lockdowns at two other nearby schools.

Police say students at Salida Del Sol Elementary and WACOG Preschool also were bussed to another location so their parents could take them home.

Students are not dumb when it comes to getting out of school work. All they have to do is hit a fire alarm or spread the word so and so has a gun and off they go to another school to sit around and wait.
I wonder what it costs the tax payers every time these bogus alarms go off? Of course the school has to react to everyone of them but maybe a little smarter!
The fire alarms mysteriously used to go off about testing time at our school until we put camera's in the vicinity of ever alarm pull and it slowed it way down.
