2022 M-A PTA Forum with Local Law Enforcement regarding Guns


The Menlo-Atherton administration identified and confiscated two loaded guns from students on campus during the fall semester 2022. The M-A PTA, in collaboration with M-A administration and law enforcement, hosted a forum regarding law enforcement's investigation and proposed response.

Law enforcement summarized collaborative efforts between M-A and local police departments to keep our students, staff, and faculty safe. We welcomed questions from the M-A community to law enforcement and the administration.
