Safety Notice to Ridgeland Campus Parents

Today, Wednesday, November 30, 2022, a student was in possession of a loaded gun clip on the Ridgeland Secondary Academy of Excellence.

There was NO gun found on campus. At no time was anyone in danger and the gun clip was confiscated immediately as the student and the belongings entered the secured area of the campus.

The gun clip was detected when the student entered through the school’s metal detectors.
Immediately, staff and campus SROs confiscated the item, and the student was detained without incident.

Jasper County School District uses metal detectors, daily, in all schools.
Parents are encouraged to speak with their children regarding safety and items not to bring on the bus or to school.

The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance to Jasper County School District. At no time will unsafe actions be accepted or supported.
