MEDFORD, Ore.- The Principal of Washington Elementary sent a letter to parents this morning after a student was injured while walking to school. Police are investigating the incident. There will be additional police presence throughout the day. 

You can see the letter below:

On the way to school this morning, two of our female students were walking to school on Peach St. when a car pulled up in front of a house across the street from where they were walking. The person in the car shot a paint ball gun at the house. A person came out of the house and shot a BB gun towards the car. A BB pellet hit one of the students in the hand then ricocheted to hit her chest. The student received minor medical treatment.

The police responded immediately, sweeping the area, making sure kids were safe on the way to school. The police are currently investigating the incident. There will be additional police presence at dismissal and throughout the day.

This incident did not include any Washington students, other than the student who was the victim. This appears to be an isolated incident involving adults in the neighborhood. However, we take all such situations seriously, keeping the safety of our students as our top priority. Counselors will be available today and tomorrow at school should your child be impacted by this incident and need support.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns.
