To Whom It May Concern:
This is to notify the parents of TUSD seniors that the student-organized "Senior Assassination" game IS NOT affiliated with TUSD nor sponsored by TUSD in any way.
If students are in possession of a squirt pistol, water rifle or any other water-related weapon on campus, they are in violation of Ed. Code Section 48900 (k) and also potentially subdivision (m) and will be suspended from school. Furthermore, planning and organizing such an activity during the school day could also result in disciplinary action. Any student participating in this game could be removed from Senior Activities such as prom, Grad Nite, and commencement.
In addition, please note that Turlock Police is aware of the activity and will continue to be vigilant in their enforcement of city laws. There will be zero tolerance for violations such as trespassing, thrown objects from vehicles, vandalism, speeding, reckless driving, etc.
Parents and residents of the Turlock community are concerned about the safety and well-being of our teenagers. TUSD highly discourages this "game" and we are particularly concerned that students with a replica firearm could be harmed inadvertently. We encourage parents to discuss this "game" with their students and discourage them from participating.
Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe.
