The school district is reminding parents to help by checking their child's belongings and backpacks every day to make sure they do not bring something dangerous to school.
And parents, remember to safely store your weapons and get a gun lock. If you do not have one, you can get one at any of the Memphis Police Department's nine precincts for free.
