Director: Lufkin Charter School Student Dismissed, Arrested for Carrying Gun to Campus!

Director: Lufkin Charter School Student Dismissed, The director of a Lufkin charter school, told the media about a student arrested for bringing a gun to school.

In a letter to parents and guardians sent out on February 8, Pineywoods Community Academy Director Monica Gunter said that on January 30 at 11 a.m., rumors started spreading in the school that an 8th grader had brought a gun to school in his backpack.

A school official looked in his bag for a weapon but didn’t find one. The 14-year-old student said he was sick and went home. Gunter said that after school was let out that day, more reports came in that the student had a gun at school.

Even though he was not on campus, the school police and PCA administrators kept looking into the situation. They talked to people on campus, went to the student’s house, and got the weapon they thought he had.
