WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A student brought a BB gun to Conniston Middle School in West Palm Beach Thursday, according to the Palm Beach County School District said.

A district spokesperson said another student sent in a tip about the BB gun.

The School District said the student brought the BB gun to school in his backpack, and will be disciplined.

"Parents, this is the time of year that you might need to remind your students that the things they have access to at home, are not necessarily appropriate to bring to school," the School District said in a statement. "I would also recommend an occasional check of your student’s backpack before they leave in the morning."
