Webster Parish Student Activities Change Rules Following Gun Scare
Things are changing at Minden high School football games because of a gun scare last week. In fact, all stadiums in Webster Parish will have strict rules about what you can bring in. At tonight's (8/26/22) Football game, you can not bring in food or drink, no umbrellas, no laser pointers, no oversized bags and of course no weapons including pocket knives or pocket tools. Bags have to be clear unless they are smaller than 4.5-by-6.5 inches.
All of this follows a couple of incidents at Minden High School. The first happened During school hours when a student stabbed another student. Then later that evening at the football game, there was an incident involving a gun. Both of these have lead to arrests.
In a precautionary move to make sure everyone is safe, the Webster Parish Schoolboard sent out a list of guidelines pictured above. All bags being brought in to football games from here on out will have to be made of a clear, see-through material.
These rules will be implemented at every football game and student function in Webster Parish from here-on-out.
