MADISON, N.C. – Two students from a school in Rockingham County face disciplinary action after authorities seized two guns from their bookbags.

The guns were seized from two boys at New Vision School of Math and Science in Madison, according to Jane P. Frazier, the school’s principal.

The students told their teacher they had been playing with the guns at home, which prompted the administration to search their bookbags.

The weapons were immediately taken from the students and nobody was ever in danger, Franzier told FOX8 in an email.

“Safety is our number one priority and we are addressed this situation based on Rockingham County School policies,” she said.
