LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Smylie Wilson Middle School will have some new safety measures in place when school is back in session.

This comes after two firearms and a pellet gun were found with students in the final weeks of the fall semester.

Students will be provided with those backpacks along with a lightweight jacket as part of their school standardized dress code.

Full-time security will also be on campus.

Lubbock ISD says the students found with the weapons were arrested and are facing severe disciplinary action.
