UPDATE (9:15 p.m. Tuesday): CCISD Superintendent Roland Hernandez told KRIS 6 "I think that the measures we have in place are really good and strong and we’ve had other districts to call us and see what we’re doing. While discussions have been had about metal detectors, it’s not something being implemented currently. Some campuses have implemented clear backpacks and the district may consider implementing that as a whole."
UPDATE (3:46 p.m. Tuesday): CCISD police chief Kirby Warnke confirmed the weapon the student was carrying was a gun.
Administrators took action after a weapon was found inside of a student’s backpack at Los Encinos Elementary on Friday.
A message was sent to parents on Sunday, which states that school officials received word of the weapon toward the end of the school day.
It's not known what type of weapon was involved.
