CONCEAL CARRY AND SCHOOLS
The law allows for the legal carrying of weapons for self-protection within certain parameters. The law DID NOT change for school properties. It continues to be a FELONY to carry weapons onto school properties. This includes all school buildings, playgrounds, and athletic fields, even if the school does not own the property. In Algoma’s case, the primary properties that Algoma uses and does not own are Peterson Park and Perry Field.
PLEASE take this note as a reminder that CONCEALED CARRY LAWS DO NOT ALLOW ANY WEAPONS TO BE ON SCHOOL PROPERTIES. POSTINGS TO THAT EFFECT ARE NOT REQUIRED. Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe by keeping all weapons off school property.
