Officials at Whitesboro's Parkway Middle School  are apologizing to parents after a BB gun was found on a student and parents were not immediately notified.

According to the school's website, students told teachers a classmate had the BB gun and after a ten minute lockdown officials found and confiscated the unloaded gun from a locker.

Officials at the school say they fully intended to send a notice home with children, but because of the length of the investigation, school had let out before all facts of the incident were known.

The investigation is ongoing and the district says they will take appropriate action when it is finished.

The school issued an apology on their website.
